While preparing any masala powder, It is always advisable to dry fry ingredients separately due to variance in size, thickness and texture of ingredients.
For this powder, since dry grated coconut is used raw, it is better to prepare only as much quantity as you require at a time. If storing the powder for future use, take out only the quantity of powder required at a time and grind it with proportionate quantity of dry grated coconut.
