Serunding Kelapa - Spiced Coconut Flakes

Serunding kelapa also known as Spiced Coconut Flakes is one of my favorite food. I like to cook it with simple ingredients.  For my breaking fast dinner tonight, it would be this serunding kelapa with glutinous rice.

1 bag of sweetened coconut flakes (14 oz./396gm)
1 medium size of sweet onion 
1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
1 tablespoon of red chili powder
1 teaspoon of cumin powder
1 teaspoon of coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon of clove powder
1 tablespoon of chopped lemongrass
1/4 teaspoon of ginger powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 small packet of dried shrimp
5 pieces kaffir lime leaf
2 tablespoons of olive oil

In a bowl, grate the onion.
Add all the spices and garlic. Combine.
Add sliced kaffir lime leaf (daun limau purut).
Mix well.
In a big skillet, heat olive oil.
Fry the paste until fragrant.
Add chopped dried shrimps.
Add coconut flakes.
Mix well and cook for 10 minutes.

I serve this savory dish with cooked glutinous rice. To cook the glutinous rice is to mix the water and the coconut milk. Use the same measurement of the rice and the water plus coconut milk. I cooked  2 cups glutinous rice with 1/2 cup coconut milk and 1 1/2 cup water. Add a pinch of salt.
