Lasnichi Chutney is a simple Goan style chutney made from garlic and coconut. In Konkani, garlic is referred to as ‘lasun’ and hence the name ‘lasnichi chutney’. It is a no cook chutney recipe.

Making and Serving Lasnichi Chutney

The recipe for lasnichi chutney is very quick and easy. It takes hardly 2 minutes to make this delicious chutney. You can serve this chutney along with idli or dosa. In Goa, we serve this chutney with roti / fulkas for breakfast. The roti and lasnichi chutney combination tastes fantastic. You can also serve it with slice bread or pao as per your liking.

Storing Garlic Coconut Chutney

This chutney is best prepared and consumed fresh. Since it is a no cook recipe and we use fresh coconut in the recipe, the chutney might get spoilt if left outside for long. Hence, it is best that this chutney is consumed within a few hours of making it. You can also store it in the refrigerator for a day and consume it the next day. Though it wont taste as good as freshly made chutney.

Important Chutney Tip

While making any kind of chutney it is very important to use only boiled or filtered water. This is because we do not heat or cook chutneys and hence it is best to use water which is safe for drinking.
