  1. Thank you for the recipe. I’ve always seen my mother adds grated coconut and grind together. But my husband don’t seems to be liking the coconut. Hence, I came out to check the recipe and found you don’t use it as well.

  2. Suggestion: Rather than freezing in ice cube trays (which are hard to clean afterward), I freeze chutneys and pesto in a thin layer in quart-size freezer bags. It takes up very little room in the freezer. It’s quick and easy to break off as much as you need, and it thaws much more quickly since it’s thinner.
