1 tsp fish curry powder
¼ tsp garam masla powder
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste

Add cockles, salt, sugar & coconut milk.

Once it start to boil add toasted coconut,

To make tosted coconut (Kerisik):

Need shredded, fresh coconut.

Toast the shredded coconut in a dry (no oil required), non-stick pan over medium heat, stirring frequently until the coconut is golden brown.

Remove from fire, slightly cool then pound the toasted coconut or you can also blend it in a spice mill.

 (Can use canned desiccated coconut if fresh ones are not available in your area, but the cooking time will be shortened for this)
