Prepping the Main Dish

  • Use the previously heated ghee and add ground coriander till it smells good. Some people take whole coriander and fry it first and then grind it finely, but I find it easier and better to grind coriander or you can just get our premium and natural coriander powder from JustSpices.in.
  • Cut the Makhana(Fox Nuts) into four pieces and add the remaining Ghee and fry it in Ghee and take it out. Coarsely grind the roasted Makhana(Fox Nuts) with a rolling pin or anything heavy.
  • Cut cashews and almonds into small pieces. and add it to the pan.
