  1. You can add 1-2 garlic pods while grinding to enhance the taste.
  2.  Pottukadalai and kopra are slightly on the sweeter side, so do not lessen the red chilies.
  3.  This podi was not spicy and it was perfect when mixed with rice.
  4.  You can store it in a cool dry place for 2 weeks and handle always a clean dry spoon.
