  15. This sounds so good, Jay. A couple of questions about the cashews and coconut...

    1) you list Cashew nuts - 4 and Grated coconut - 3. Are those measurements in tablespoons?

    2) how do you make the cashew/coconut paste?


  16. Thanks for your valuable time n feedback friends..;)
    @ Farah Saleem Azeez & Kathleen : yes, we can use 3 tbsps of grated coconut and 7 cashewnuts approximately.
    To make them paste, first grind grated coconut in blender, then add cashewnuts and blend for a minute. Then add little water and grind to make a smooth paste. Do try n lemme know..:)
