Heat enough oil, fry the fennel seed powder, add the chopped onions,chopped ginger pieces,crushed garlic cloves,chopped green chillies,curryleaves,alt and saute for until the onions turns transculent, finally add the garam masala,cook for few add the cooked channadal,grated coconut and toss gently everything for few minutes and put off the stove..Enjoy warm..
