Salt to taste.

1 tbsp chopped Corriander leaves.

For Tempering(Optional)

1 tsp Ghee.

1/2 tsp Rai ( Mustard seeds).

6 Curry leaves.

pinch of Hing ( Asafoetida.)

Method:

Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl.Heat Ghee,add rai,hing and curry leaves.

Add to the mixture.Mix well.Garnish with chopped corriander leaves.Serve immediately.

Tip:Tempering is optional,can also be nmade without tempering.

Avoid adding onion if making on any auspicious occassion.
