  • Coarsely grind coconut, jeera, green chilli and curd. Dont grind it to a smooth paste. It should be just mixed together.
  • When the vegetables are cooked, mix the ground mixture and mix slowly. The vegetables should not be mashed.
    Let it simmer for 1 minute and then take it off from heat.
