Servings 4 servings


  • 2 large pomegranates
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly crushed black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or ghee
  • 2 sprigs curry leaves


  • The original recipe calls for heating the ghee and adding the pomegranate and curry leaves and cooking for a minute or two till soft. I chose to use coconut oil and keep the crunch of the pomegranate.
  • Cut the pomegranates and remove the arils. Put them in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and freshly crushed pepper.
  • Heat the coconut oil and add the curry leaves. Mix well and serve immediately.
