- 1 tbsp sombu (saunf)
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- 3-4 green chilli
- Curry leaves
- 2 tbsp kopra
- 2 tbsp sugar powder
- Oil 3 tbsp
- Dry roast sesame seeds and flaxseed till they pop up.
- Dry roast the kopra.
- Add 2 tsp of oil and roast kodo millet poha on low heat.
- Add a tsp of oil and roast ragi poha on low heat.
- Add a tbsp of oil and fry saunf, chopped green chillies ( till it changes its colour), groundnuts, roasted gram one by one.
- Finally fry the curry leaves till crisp and a pinch asafoetida in the remaining oil.
