Take a fresh coconut and break into half and remove water and place in the refrigerator till it dehydrates and then use .Here I just kept it in the kitchen for a week without breaking and when tried to break open to remove shell it came out whole in shape and so I cut into half.
To prepare powder
Normally we can make this with dry coconut readily available in the market,somtimes it may not be fresh enough. So I dried the fresh coconut in my refrigerator…Just break open the whole fresh coconut and keep in the fridge door section for 2-3 days .Then grate,you get nice and soft curls,just add salt,red chili powder and garlic pods 2-3 and make coarse powder.
This Coconut powder can be used in fries or like chutney powder .
