Notes

Do not use a drop of oil and water for this recipe.
I do recommend using fresh coconut, frozen preferred, but don't use dessicated.
Always try to roast the ingredients in slow medium heat as it will burn easily and do stir constantly till it is evenly roasted.
This chuntey powder has a high shelf life and keeps well for a month in room temperature and will stay long if stored in refrigerator.
