  • Heat oil in a medium-sized pan and at medium heat.
  • Add chilies to it and roast them till an aroma emanates from it.
  • Remove the chilies and keep it aside.
  • Then roast remaining ingredients (coriander seeds, cumin seeds, pepper seeds, and fenugreek seeds) for a minute or till it turns aromatic. Set it aside to cool it down (for approximately 10 minutes)
  • Transfer them to a blender along with the chilies and dehydrated garlic cloves and grind them to a fine powder. Store it in an airtight container for future use.
  • Note: To dehydrate garlic, roast the unpeeled garlic cloves in a pan on medium to low heat until crisp.
