  • 1 cup chopped Amla (Around 200 gms whole Amla)
  • 1/4 cup Chana dal (Bengal gram)
  • 1/4 cup Coriander seeds (Dhaniya)
  • 1 tbsp Whole pepper seeds
  • 1 tbsp Cumin seeds (Jeera)
  • 1 tsp Fenugreek seeds (Methi)
  • 15 cloves Garlic
  • 4 Whole red chili
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 4 sprigs Curry leaves
  • Pinch of Hing
  • Salt to taste
  • 1.5 tbsp coconut oil


  • Heat a kadai and dry roast chana Dal, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, whole pepper, methi seeds separately.
  • Roast curry leaves till they are crisp. I have used shade dried curry leaves.
  • Add coconut oil to the same kadai and fry red chili. Once they are fried, remove from the kadai and keep them aside.
  • To the same oil, add roughly chopped garlic and let it brown.
  • Take these aside and add amla pieces to the kadai. Add a pinch of hing and a little salt. Let Amla pieces cook on medium flame. It will take around 5-8 minutes. Take these aside, let them cool down.
  • Now take a mixer grinder and add roasted ingredients from step 1, curry leaves, Turmeric powder, salt and make a fine powder.
  • Now add fried red chili, garlic, amla and grind it into a coarse powder. Adjust salt and the powder is ready to use.
