      Wow! Amazing. The coconut, onion, and chilies with the spices is truly unique. It was definitely worth the prep and labor. Remember to grind the spices up to a fine powder before mixing with the onion mixture. I served it with a little saffron warmed in milk and cooked with some Basmati rice.
