  •      Meanwhile roast the chopped cilantro till it shrivels a bit add kokum pcs roast a bit.. allow it to cool
  •     Grind the chillies, Cumin seeds and fenugreek seeds and rock salt ( I use it because its healthier than table salt but you can use table salt)
  • When nicle powdered add cilantro and kokum grind 
  • Now heat oil prepare tempering add the cilantro paste stir till it lleaves oil .. cool...
  • This stays good for 3-4 days but if you want to preserve for more days you need to add oil liberally...
