  • Take a deep pan and heat ghee in it. Add mustard seeds, turmeric powder, coriander seed powder, cumin seeds, curry leaves, chilies (red and green) and asafoetida in it.
  • When the seeds begin to crack, add kokum water to the pan. Do it safely, so that no residue spits out on your face.
  • Mix gram flour in the pod water and mix well, till it becomes smooth.
  • Now, add sugar and salt (as per taste) to the boiling kokum water and stir well.
