Most often we see coconut going rancid for various reasons . Our elders had a solution to all these problems . Either they used the coconut to make Soyi bhajjille ghassis , kattalli bhajjille ghassis or just this quick bhajjille tamballi .This is so tasty – that you can pat yourself for having made a best out of waste item ! Of course you can make this from fresh coconut too ..but see that the coconut is dry & mature .
- Grated coconut – 1 cup (fresh or even one that is just started to smell bad)
- Jeera – 1 tsp
- Coriander – 1 tbsp
- Red chilies – 4-5 or more as per taste
- Tamarind – a large gooseberry size
- Curry leaves – 2 sprigs
- Salt to taste
Roast all the ingredients to a golden brown colour .
When cool grind all the ingredients to a smooth paste using minimal water . Check for salt . this should be tangy & spicy .
|This is best had as a side dish with rice or with polos . This makes an unbeatable combo with just simple pejj ( rice gruel ).|
