1 tsp ..................turmeric powder
10 to 12 ............curry leaves
1 tsp..................mustard seeds
2 tbsp or more................jaggery
salt

Method :

In little coconut oil stir fry udid daal, methi and rice till pink .
Grind this along with coconut, turmeric and chillies.
Wash and crush ambade a bit.
