    Hello Sailu, I am a big fan of your recipes – my husband loves them! Fresh coconut is not available where I live. Could I use some of that shredded coconut that comes in a bag for this dish? If so, would I use the same amount?
    Thanks in advance for your time and again for so many wonderful recipes,
