How to preserve?

You can use a plastic container and store it in the refrigerator. It is made up of fresh and wet coconut. Wet coconut does not have a long life. So you can store it for 2-3 days. I would suggest you not to keep this chutney for more than two days. Wet coconut started changing taste after two days. 

How to increase the taste of chutney while eating ?

You don't need to add anything in it. It's already tasty and lip-smacking. If you add oil then you will mess with taste. 

If you want then only you can add lemon juice to increase sour taste.
