    This's a curry that can be enjoyed with hot steaming rice or with Indian rotis.We usually make this during winters when cold weather persists.Mainly a south Indian dish,it's made in coastal regions mainly....where coconut is available in abundance.You can make this cury when you don't have any vegetable on hand or are just plain lazy to cook an elaborate vegetarian or non vegetarian curry.


    • For the gravy masala:
    • 1 cup grated coconut(fresh or dry-shredded )
    • 2 dry red chillies
    • 1 small onion
    • 2 fat cloves of garlic
    • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
    • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
    • 4-5 peppercorns
    • 1 tsp lemon juice
    • 1/4 tsp sugar
    • For the seasoning:
    • 1/2 of a small onion finely sliced
