    Hi Asiya, I would like to try this recipe. Have a question. Can I grate coconut and grind all three ingredients I.e coconut, almond and cashew together and add the paste. Thanks for your reply.
    Regards and take care.

      Yes Marina you can make a paste of all the ingredients together…But first make a powder of all the ingredients, then add water and make a paste…Doing this way gives us a smooth paste…
