Satini Coco

Satini coco is a very popular Mauritian food which translates into coconut chutney in english. Back in the days, satini coco was traditionally made using a manual rock grinder called “roche cari” in Mauritian Creole. Nowadays, you can use a blender or a pestle and mortar. Satini coco is widely used as an accompaniment to many dishes, especially rice and curries. All you need is one coconut, some mint, and a good table spoon of┬átamarind, and you have of the most addictive and versatile chutneys.




  1. 1 fresh young coconut
  2. 1 bunch mint
  3. 10 chillies
  4. 2 tbs tamarind paste
  5. Salt
  6. Warm water


  1. Break the coconut and remove the outer skin
  2. Remove also the inner skin with a knife so you only have the white flesh of the coconut
  3. Grate the coconut finely
  4. Blend the grated coconut, mint, tamarind, and chillies in a blender or pestle and mortar until all ingredients are mixed properly into a nice paste
