Directions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the mint leaves and fry until slightly wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a skillet (or a kadhai, if you have one). Add the red chile peppers, black lentils, coriander seed, chana dal, and mustard seed; cook in the hot oil until the lentils brown and the seeds start to splatter; remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Grind the mixture into a coarse powder using a mortar and pestle; add the mint leaves, tamarind paste, and salt; continue crushing until the mint is completely integrated.

Here's a simpler version since I can't figure out how to submit a recipe. Blend (1 bunch fresh coriander, 1 clove garlic, 1 tablespoon minced fresh root ginger, 1 minced green chilli, 1 tablespoon peanuts, salt to taste and 2 tablespoons lemon juice) in a food processor. Add a few drops of water if it gets too dry... Totally yum with mayo on sliced bread
