Ingredients

  • 10 dried red chillies
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp cum

Method

Soak chillies in warm water for 30 minutes. Drain and chop finely.

Roast coriander seeds and cumin seeds in a dry, hot frying pan for about 3 minutes until they just start to colour and release their aromas. Using a mortar and pestle, slowly pound all the ingredients together. Keep working until a nice, moist paste is formed.
