ingredients for tempering (Optional)


  • Heat a pan and dry roast sesame seeds on medium to low flame for about 5 minutes. They should roast well and start to pop. Take them out and let them cool down.
  • In the same pan, roast the cumin and fenugreek seeds till they are fragrant and take them aside. You can fenugreek seeds and use ground cumin instead of using whole seeds and roasting them.
  • Add a teaspoon of oil and fry red chili and take it aside. You can use green chili as well. This step is optional, and you can skip frying the chili or chili as a whole. For the spiciness of dip, you can use black pepper.
