1/4 cup urad dal/ black split gram
1/4 cup kadle bele/channa dal
1/8 cup black pepper seeds
1/8 tsp jeera seeds

15-20 sundried red chilies - Kashmiri or Byadagi variety

Dry roast all the ingredients individually until aromatic. Combine them all together; roast for just a minute in ghee/olive oil. Cool completely and powder to a coarse texture. If you plan to store it for more than two weeks, omit the dry coconut and roasting in ghee.
