Coconut and jaggery, perked up with cardamom, is an all-time favourite in Konkan cuisine, especially as an accompaniment for Neer Dosa.


Not only that, this popular combination known by different names like Churna, Pooran, Poornam, and so on, is popular all over south India and the western coastal regions where coconuts are used abundantly in cooking, and the people have an instinctive liking for it.


This subtly sweet and crunchy Churna is not only an enjoyable accompaniment for dosas, it can also be used as a stuffing for Modak , kadubu, poli and other dishes.
