My Notes:

  • Slow roast all the ingredients, do not burn them.
  • Roasting red chillies with dal ensures even roasting and will not burn red chillies.My mother always insists not to roast red chillies alone.
  • Adjust spice level according to ur preference.
  • You can even add a tsp of roasted jeera while grinding  for extra flavour.
  • It keeps well for 2-3 months in room temperature.
