  • In a bowl soak the tamerind ball in 1 cup of water. keep aside
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok. Add the cumin .
  • Add the garlic and curry leaves and saute. 
  • Add the pepper and tomato.
  • Add the chillies and saute for a minute
  • Add the turmeric powder and the asafoetida. Add salt.

  • Take the juice from the tamerind. strain. pour in the juice. stir.
  • Add more water to the tamerind and take a second juice. Add to the pan.
  • taste and check the tamerind and salt level.
