  • Finely chop the spring onion

  • Turn onto kitchen paper to drain

  • Toast the peanuts in a dry frying pan until they are starting to brown

  • Combine the peanuts, chillies and coconut in a spice grinder, processor or mortar

  • Grind, blitz, pestle till you have a texture like breadcrumbs: not chunks, nor powder

  • Add the crispy onions and mix through

  • Store in a jar or Tupperware (other containers are available)

  • Keep it dry and it'll keep in a cupboard for about 4-6 weeks
