  TIPS
  
  If you wish to substitute unsweetened, desiccated coconut for fresh
  coconut use 5 tbsps (1 oz/30 grammes). Barely cover with warm water
  and leave for one hour, then proceed with the recipe.
  
  Coriander is the parsley of India. Mix it with vegetables and
  chicken, use as a garnish and add the stems to soup and dals for
  extra flavour. To keep coriander fresh, stand sprigs in a glass of
  water, cover with a plastic bag and keep in the fridge.
  
  Kurma
  
  Westerners who come to Madras, Tamil Nadu's capital city, expecting
  to find meals made with "Madras" curry powder are in for a surprise.
  Curry powders manufactured in this southern Indian city are strictly
  for export. Aromatic spices, fennel seeds and fresh coconut are the
  ingredients that give the superb cuisine of Tamil Nadu its flavour
  and texture.
  
  For this dish, vegetables are "dressed" with a ground paste of fresh
  coconut, poppy seeds and green chillies, which is cooked briefly with
  the vegetables so that it is absorbed by them. The dish is best
  served with plain rice and you could also serve it as an
  accompaniment to a meat dish.
