Hi Avni, You can get it at a shop in the covered area of Shivaji Market. Just ask for the person who sells Food from Thailand, South asia etc. Another place is at the Food shop in Pheonix Mall. Good luck.

Hi Achala, The book is in the final stages of retesting all recipes with volunteer cooks ranging from people from the Konkan, North Indians and an American. This is to get the widest feedback possible about authencity, taste and ease of preparation. It is an amazing process if time consuming. Trust it will get out there soon!

I do not have the address since we just spotted the place off the highway. BTW You might be able to buy hurda during the season near Tulsi Bagh in the city.

Sorry for the oversight. You have to fry the urad dal at the end along with the other seasoning. It gives a nice crunch to the dish. The grated coconut is a garnish..sprinkle on before serving.

Zenobia you would probably get it in Chandan and Dorabjees but it is sooo easy to make at home. Break a coconut,chop the coconut flesh into bits and put into a blender. Grind till very fine and almost a paste. Do not add water. Now squeeze through a fine strainer or wring in muslin cloth to extract the creme. Much tastier than any processed stuff you can buy.

A stomach can be filled with anything edible and few young people think about the value of ingredients when taste can be manipulated with all kinds of unhealthy additives. Continue reading
