Kobbari Podi / Coconut Powder


One more yummy podi from Andhra's long list of podis, which requires only a few ingredients and very simple to prepare. If you are a coconut freak like me, then kobbari podi is the right one for you. It tastes delicious when served with rice and ghee. Here goes the recipe.
Ingredients:
Fresh coconut, grated - 1 Cup
Chillie powder - 1 tsp or Red chillies (fried a little so that they are crisp) - 6
Salt - 1 tsp or accordingly
Cumin seeds (Jeera) - 1 tsp

Dry roast the grated fresh coconut in a wok or pan on low flame.
Keep roasting until the coconut turns to golden brown in color. Remove and let it cool. Grind the roasted coconut with cumin seeds, chillie powder (or chillies) and salt in a blender into a coarse powder.

Very nice, with hot rice and ghee it will be very tasty, normally we add red chili (fry and grind it). Viji

Thanks Viji. As you said, I too add red chillies sometimes. This time, I used chillie powder and forgot to mention about chillies.
I updated about it in my post.Thank you for reminding me.
