My daughter came back after a short stay at my sister’s house and couldn’t stop waxing eloquent about this magic powder that grannygaru, my sister’s mother-in-law , added to vegetables that makes them taste so sooooo good.

So I asked aunty to share the recipe of the magic seasoning that she adds to all vegetable preparations. It smells and tastes amazing. And you must try it to be able to enjoy the aroma and the flavours.

It has some of the most power packed ingredients. I only made a small change of adding mustard seeds to the mix as I have been reading a lot about the benefits of mustard.

  • Urad dal: ¼ cup
  • Chana dal: 1/8 cup
  • Sesame seeds: 1/8 cup
  • Grated Dry coconut/ copra: 1/8 cup
  • Peanuts: 1/8 cup
  • Dry red chillies: 5nos
  • Mustard seeds: 1 tsp
  • Hing: ¼ tsp
  • Rock salt: to taste
  • Dry roast each of the ingredients, other than hing and salt, separately.
  • In a mixie grind urad dal, chana dal, red chilli, salt and hing to a coarse powder.
  • Add peanuts, dry coconut and sesame seeds to the coarse powder in the mixie jar and grind together.
  • Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator and use as required.

Wellcure tips:
