  4. In the meanwhile, break the dry red chili into two halves and de-seed them. Soak them in warm water for about 5 min
  5. Roughly chop them and make a paste with the garlic cloves in a mortar and pestle .
  6. In the frying pan heat about 1 tbsp mustard oil. Put mustard seeds and then the curry leaves for few seconds till they release their flavour.
