Salt to taste


Clean the cilantro and transfer to blender.

Add salt and grind it to course mixture but not paste.
In a pan heat oil and add udad dal.
Saute till golden brown and add the cilantro mixture.
Mix well and cook on low flame till it becomes dry powder.
Mix in between so that it does not burn at the bottom.
