Kobbari Podi

Kobbari is the telugu word for coconut. Kobbari podi is a wonderfully smelling and equally tasty coconut powder, which is great with chapathi/rotis. The other day, when I saw Gayathri's post, in which she made a coconut powder, I got reminded of this kobbari podi which my granny and mom make as a quick accompaniment for chapathis/rotis. My granny would traditionally grind this kobbari podi using a big mortar and pestle.

Dry coconut - 1/4 cup
Green Chillies - 4, roughly chopped (as per taste)
Garlic - 1, small clove
Onion - 1 tbsp, finely chopped
Salt - As per taste

Method of Preparation:
1. Add the garlic, salt and green chillies to a grinder and grind them.
2. Add the dry coconut to it and grind to a fine powder. (If using dry shredded coconut, just pulse once or twice and mix the whole mixture using a spoon).
3. Adjust the salt and mix in the chopped onion.
4. Enjoy the simple, yummy kobbari podi with hot chapathis/rotis.
