Curry leaves .... 1 sprig
Salt .... ...... to taste
Oil ................ 2-3 tbsps.
Ghee ...1 tbsp.
Cashewnuts .... 6-8

Method:

1. Heat oil in a pan. Add asafoetida, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, red chillies and curry leaves







.
2. Now add the onion, green chillies and ginger. Saute for a few minutes.








3. Add the semolina and salt. Stir for 4-5 minutes.








4. Boil two and half cups water and add to the semolina stirring continuously to avoid lumps.
