Water to grind
In a mixie grind all the ingredients by gradually adding water. Make it into a smooth but coarsy paste . Transfer it into a bowl.
In a pan take oil for tempering. Once the oil heats add mustard seeds and let it crackle. Add asafoetida and curry leaves to this. Let the leaves crisp up. Pour it on the chutney and serve.
