Cooling the masala before grinding in an old mixie is just a precaution against burning the rubber knob due to over heating.... :) If you have a mixie with platic knobs, guess it would be okay...try it out at your own risk ;-) Infact, you can grind when the masala is warm to make it a smooth paste.... General Tip : add hot water to coconut to grind it into a fine paste!!
