  2. Heat half tsp oil in a pan add pirandai, red chillies, tamarind saute well and set aside to cool.
  3. Dry roast fenugreek and mustard seeds cool them and crush them coarsely using a mortar pestel.
  4. Grind pirandai, red chillies, tamarind {if using tamarind paste add at this stage} to very coarse paste or if you have ammikallu / a bigger mortal pestel you can crush them to coarse paste.
  5. Heat oil in a kadai add the paste, asafoetida, salt mix well and in low heat saute well approx 8 mins. Add fenugreek and mustard powder to it give a nice mix.

My Tip:

Stores well for 20 days when refrigerated. This may cause itching while cleaning, so its better to clean them wearing a kitchen glove.
