1 onion finely chopped

1 tbs. oil

1 tbs. cumin seeds

1 tbs. mustard seeds

1 tsp. turmeric

1 tsp. chilli powder

1 green chilli (whole)

Coriander to garnish

Salt to taste




  1. Heat up the oil in a small frying pan.
  2. When it is hot, add in the cumin and mustard seeds.
  3. When the cumin seeds start to sizzle and the mustard seeds start to pop, add in the onions and the green chilli.
