Curry Leaves Thambli/Raita

This one quite easy and tasty raita which goes really well with steam hot rice.My mother used to make different types of thambli and i like all of them.I Im getting all the thambli recipes(from mom) and making them.
She makes with Manathakkali keerai.It has lots of medicinal value but i dont get in US.If you happen to get, use them in this recipe.

Ghee : 1tsp
Jeera/Cumin seeds : 1tsp
Pepper : 1tsp
Curry Leaves : about 15 to 18 leaves washed
Coconut : 1/4 cup
Curd : 1 cup

Cumin seeds and Mustard seeds for Tampering.

1.In a skillet,add ghee with pepper and jeera and fry a little.
2.When jeera crackles,add curry leaves and fry.
3.Fry carefully as pepper and curry leaves dances alot. :)
4.Remove from heat,cool and grind with coconut.
