Dry saute mustard seeds, fenugreek and cumin seeds in a pan. Grind the ingredients to a fine powder and keep aside.

In the remaining oil, fry crushed garlic and remove the vessel from fire.

Step 5

Add turmeric powder, chilly powder, previously powdered mustard mix, asafoetida powder and required salt. Mix well.
