Serunding Kelapa Ringkas(Over Easy Savory Coconut)

Aidil Fitri's meal or any Kenduri kendara (gathering) will never be complete without mom's delicious Serunding kelapa(Savory coconut). The first year I celebrated Aidil Fitri in the US, I cooked mom's serunding kelapa recipe exactly the way she would cook it. I find it very time consuming and my hand just stiffed after grating the fresh coconut. The second year, I decided to cook it my quick and simple American way.

1 cup of sweet coconut flakes
1 tbs cumin powder
1 tbs coriander powder
1/2 tbs cinnamon powder
1/2 tablespoon turmeric
1 tablespoon chilli powder
chopped shrimp or can also use dried shrimp
1 tablsepoon chopped lemongrass
a pinch of salt

Heat non stick saucer pan on medium heat stove. Stir the coconut without oil until brown. Then add chilli powder, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, turmeric, shrimp, lemongrass and salt until brown.
The smell is divine! Serve this as side dish with cooked rice, or you can eat it just by itself.

Another way to add a dash to the serunding is to mix it with cooked shrimp(small size).Yummy!
