1.In a pan, heat a tea spoon of oil and roast the urad dal until they are roasted well, nice aroma comes and the color changed to slight brown. (Even you can dry roast, oil is optional)
2. When they are turning into slight brown, add the Red chilies and roast until they are puffed and changing the color.
3.Transfer them to a plate and sprinkle the hing powder on the hot urad dal and mix with a spoon
4. In the same pan, dry roast, curry leaves, sesame seeds, and garlic desperately, and transfer them to the plate.
5. Garlic should be roasted until the skin peels of itself.
