  • pinch of Asafoitida
  • 4-5 Red Chillies

  • 1 cup Coconut
  • 1 tsp cooking Oil
  • Salt to taste

For Tempering:
  • 1 tsp Cooking Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard seed
  • 1 red Chili broken(optional)
  • Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, red Chilli, Asafoitida and Vitamin leaves, saute  for 2-3 min on a low flame, allow to cool for 2-3 min.
  • Then grind the cooled mixture with Coconut, Tamarind, salt to taste and very little water.
