250 gm fennel
100 gm fenugreek
100 gm mustard seeds
100 gm peppercorns
50 gm cumin

Preparation :

Grate the coconut and dry in the sun for 3 days. Similarly the ginger, garlic and onions have to be peeled and chopped roughly and kept in the sun till hard and dry.

Over the koili (broken earthen pot) all the above ingredients have to be roasted over slow fire separately, except for turmeric and coriander seeds which have to be roasted together till they change color.

The Goa rice has to be washed, sun-dried and roasted. Finally the sun-dried coconut, ginger, garlic and onions and rice have to be roasted on very very slow fire till light brown. When all are roasted, mix all the ingredients together well.

Take to the mill preferably while still hot, and get it powdered. Bring the powder home and let it cool. Put in a thick plastic bag and store in an air-tight container.
