Cut coconut in tiny pieces. Mince the onions. Grind together salted peanuts, garlic, ginger, peppercorn and salt as required. Do not add water. If needed you can add one small half onion. In a nonstick pan heat oil, add onion seeds and coconut chips, then add onion and green chili, saute until onion changes its color lightly. Now add grinded peanut and fry for four minutes in low flame. Add sesame seeds during frying. The super tasty and easy side dish for steamed rice is ready to be served. It is best to taste with hot rice or it can be served in rolled bread or roti.
