  • Blender


  • 12 cloves Garlic pods
  • 1 cup Desiccated Coconut
  • 7 Red chilies adjust based on spice preference
  • 2 tablespoon Sesame seed
  • 2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoon Oil


  • Clean the garlic and remove the skin. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a pan and roast the garlic until it is light brown. Remove it in a bowl and keep it aside.
  • In the same pan, heat ½ teaspoon of oil and fry the red chilies. Remove it on the same bowl as garlic.
  • Next fry the sesame seeds until it light brown. Place it in the same bowl as the rest of the ingredients.
  • Now add the remaining ½ teaspoon of oil and fry the desiccated coconut until it is light brown. Make sure you roast the coconut in low flame as it can burn very quickly.
  • Place it with the rest of the ingredients.
  • At the end fry the salt for just a minute. My mother always did this when she grinds dry powders as it increases the shelf life.
  • Let all the ingredients cool down to room temperature and then grind it into a coarse powder. Don't grind it in one swing as the coconut and sesame will let out too much oil and become like a paste. Pulse the mixer in regular intervals.
  • Store the powder in an airtight container and use it as a condiment with chaat items.
