Thank u Mayask, Sriniwas & Priya. You can store on shelf for 3-4 days. May be even more since we are using dry coconut, roasting everythg & not adding any water. In my home whenever i make it gets over in 3 days. You can refrigerate it for 30-40 days. I refrigerated it when we were travelling. Before using bring it to room temperature & its tastes good. Always use dry spoon.
