This is really great…It will go well with rice puttu also..but reduce the amount of coconut and make it more watery..

Kudos…Please give more of such authentic kerala recipes!!

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!!
