  • Place the De-seeded Dry Red Chillies in a pan and pour 1 cup of water into it.
  • Allow it to boil and then simmer for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, switch off the flame and drain the water.
  • Keep the water aside and do not throw it away.
  • Now take the Red Chillies in a blender and grind it into a smooth paste.
  • Use the reserved water to grind this.
  • Now place a kadai on the stove and add the Oil.
  • Once the Oil is warm, add the Garlic and Ginger and saute for couple of minutes.
