  • While powdering it is always better to avoid overload to the mixer jar. So we shall powder the contents in two trips. In the first trip include everything except coconut and make it a fine powder. Remove it to dry mixing bowl and then crush the roasted coconut and mix well with the former.
  • You can reduce use of curry leaves, according to your taste.
