Mustard-1/2 a teaspoon
Jeera-1/2 a teaspoon
Redchilli 1 or 2 [optional]
Urad dhal/1/2 a teaspoon
Curry leaves-a few

1. Grind all the ingredients 1-5 to a smooth paste adding a little water
2. Heat a small pan with oil and put in the seasonings.
3. When the dal turns brown and curry leaves crisp ,pour over the ground chuntney
4. Mix well and serve with a breakfast dish of your choice.
