Learnt From: My friend Sunitha.

Sesame Seeds --- ¼ cup
Dry Red Chilies --- 8
Tamarind --- 3-4 strands
Salt --- as per taste


Turn the heat to medium-low. Keep a pan on it. Add peanuts fry for a while.
Add dry red chilies, sesame seeds, fry till nice aroma comes or till the peanuts come to light brown colour.
Add tamarind fry for a while.
Turn off the heat.
Let them cool.
Grind all the fried into a fine powder by adding enough salt.
Let them come to room temperature.

Store the powder in a air-tight container.
