Kerala is one of the south Indian states of India. Coconut is a main ingredient in almost all the recipes belonging to this region. Sometimes it is used scraped, sometimes as a paste, sometimes the milk of coconut is extracted and added to the dish and some other times it is dry roasted and then ground into a paste before adding it to any dish. Each way of adding coconut gives a distinctive flavour to the dish. Here in this curry the coconut is roasted and then made to a paste before finally adding it to the gravy.
