Kobbari Kaaram ~ Coconut Spice Powder

Kobbari Kaaram / Coconut Spice Powder is a simple spice powder you can make very easily and compliments your rice or breakfast items. When I am in a hurry and do not have time to prepare chutney for any south indian breakfast like Idli, Upma etc, then this spice powder is the Go! Even this makes your lunch plate appetizing, when you serve this with hot white rice and a spoon of clarified butter. Hmmm that sounds Yummm! Here is the recipe, Enjoy!

Sanaga Pappu (Putnala Pappu) - 1 cup (Roasted Bengal Gram Dal)
Coconut Flakes( Dry) - 1/2 cup
Red Chilies - 8 to 10
Garlic - 5 to 6
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
salt - 2 tsp

First grind the Red Chilies, Cumin Seeds until they become fine powder. Then add Garlic Cloves and Grind.
Add Putnala pappu (Roasted Dal) , salt and  grind corasely. Add Coconut powder and grind until  fine powder. Seal this in  air tight container and store in cool place.

This goes very well with on top of your Upmas, Idli. This taste wonderful when you serve hot white rice and with a spoonful of Ghee (clarified butter).


  • The spice of this powder depends on spiciness of your red chilies. Adjust the measurement based on the chilies you use. I have medium spice chilies, so have used 8 to 10.
  • You can use this powder in Tindora Fry, Karela (bitter gourd) Fry, Cluster Beans Fry (Goru Chikkudu Vepudu) . 

take care and have a great day!
