Meanwhile, in a mixie, mix grated coconut, cumin seeds and green chilies very well with water to make a paste. After sometime, add curd to the curry – If you wish, you can mix the curd in the mixie itself with the coconut mix. After the curry boils, add the coconut mix. Let it boil just a little and switch off the gas. For the tempering, heat oil and add mustard seeds. When it crackles, add dry red chili and curry leaves. Pour this on top of the curry.
