1. Prepare cumin and tamarind paste. Then, shell the coconut (see Kitchen Basics- Shelling a Coconut). With a vegetable peeler, remove the brown skin from the meat and discard. Coarsely chop the coconut meat into 1/2- to 1-inch pieces. In a food processor or a blender, process together the coconut, ginger, green chili peppers, and garlic until minced.
2. Add the cilantro, mind, tamarind, and salt and process, scraping the sides of the work bowl a few times with a spatula, until smooth. Adjust the seasonings, then transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with the cumin and serve immediately, refrigerate about 10 days or freeze up to 6 months.
VARIATION: Add about 1/2 cup skinned, dry-roasted peanuts or cashews (see INFORMATION AND SPECIAL TECHNIQUES: __Dry-Roasting Nuts and Seeds) along with the coconut in Step 1.
