Freezing Coconut Paste

Coconut paste is used in lot of kurma varieties and kuzhambu varieties in South Indian cooking. Making the coconut paste in bulk and freezing it will be handy. I used the cute ice cube trays to freeze the coconut.
Ingredients
Whole coconut/Freshly grated coconut
Very little water
Method
Wash the ice cube trays and keep it ready.
Break the coconut, and using a sharp knife, take the coconut, chop into small pieces. (If using freshly grated coconut, you can skip this step)
Take the coconut in a mixer/food processor and pulse it for 3-4 times.
Now add little water and grind it into a fine paste.
Fill the ice cube trays with the ground coconut and freeze it for 4-5 hours. 
Take the frozen coconut cubes and store it in a zip-lock bags.
Use them as needed in sambar-puli kuzhambu or korma/kuruma.
