Yes. We made coconut chutney and "puli thogayal" just by pressing pulse button. Surprised to see the real paste, in less than a minute - we are happy we made the correct decision of buying this product. We were using Osterizer and Priya blenders, but they are no match for this blender, despite the fact that this blender costs about 10 times the cost of Oster.

Absolutely - it will comfortably grind the coconut for chutney makes it great even if you add chick peas. I make coastal (konkani) coconut recipes with this all the time. This blender grinds it like a stone grinder would.

Vitamix surely will. I do this almost daily on Vitamix. Blendtec seems like a comparable machine, my only issue is lack of proper control with manual switches. Vitamix is a simpler machine but probably works well. I have had one for over 15 years. Still runs like new.

I am sure it will. we were at costco and saw demo. they made wheat flour in the blender . did not see more but they had all kind of pulses there so i am sure it can handle any indian spices..was very tempted to buy one.
