1 medium onion, chopped finely
4 small chilies, slit
1 sprig curry leaves, torn
1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp fresh coconut, scraped
Lemon wedges
1. Add oil in a microwave safe container. Microwave for 30 seconds.
2. Add mustard seeds, turmeric powder and asafoetida. Microwave for 1 minute.
3. Now stir in onion, chilies & curry leaves. Microwave for 6 minute.
4. Wait for 1 minute.
