WHAT YOU NEED:
Tender Hog plums/ Ambadi 20-25

HOW TO MAKE:
Wash Hog plums, wipe and cut each of them into 4 pieces.
Heat a small pan with a tsp oil. When the oil is ready splutter mustard seeds, remove and keep aside.
In the same oil fry fenugreek seeds, remove.
Fry asafoetida and keep aside. Allow it to cool down.
Take a small vessel, put salt and 3/4 water. Boil it till the water level equals to the salt, on a low flame.
Now powder mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and asafoetida to a fine mixture.
Grind red chillies along with salt to a very fine texture.
