     This is a healthy , easy and quick recipe…so here I am with a popular and traditional recipe of every konkani people’s home known as ‘Piyava Tambali ‘ …… Piyav in Konkani means onion and Tambali is known for the dishes which are not cooked or where we add curds to the dish….
Tambali is usually prepared during rainy season or when there is nothing veggies left in the fridge as this recipe is prepared using only 4 ingredients like coconut,raw onions,red chilles and Tamrind…..
      It’s one of the easiest and quickest  side dish which can be prepared for rice instead of sambar or Rasam….
   This is a perfect combo to boiled rice or steam rice with papads or fryyums (vodi /sandige) or any fries or with fish fries …
    But note the self life of this recipe is less as the dish is not cooked so refrigerate this once it’s done….i can say a best recipe for cooking without fire ..


•1 cup fresh coconut grated
•6 fried red byadagi chillies
•a small piece tamrind
•Salt to taste
•1tblsp coconut oil to drizzle (optional )
•1chopped raw onion


▪In a mixi jar add  coconut ,red chillies and tamrind and grind to smooth chutney consistency using little water
