1.5 cups Fresh shredded coconut/ grated coconut
1 shallot chopped or 4 Asian shallots or 2 tbsp chopped onion
2 teaspoons chili flakes
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to your taste)
2 teaspoons lime juice or small piece of lime (adjust to your taste)
1 habanero (optional)
Add chili flakes, chili powder, and salt to the mortar and pestle. pound it to make a coarse powder. Salt makes it easier to grind.
Then add chopped shallots, chopped habanero, and grind to a coarse paste. Do not grind shallot/onion too much, they become bitter. (You can add the habanero first, grind it finely and then add chopped shallot and grind that too)
Now add your shredded coconut to the mortar and pestle and pound again to mix.
Add lime juice and pound very well unit everything is thoroughly mixed and no white color coconut pieces left.
Taste and adjust salt and lime for your taste.
