  • Add water to it. With your clean hands, squeeze it and remove all the pulp.
  • Add that water along with seeds in yogurt mixture. Stir well.
  • Heat this mixture on medium heat. Do stir constantly while it is getting heated up.
  • Let it simmer with stirring occasionally for around 12-13 minutes.
  • If it gets too thick then you can add splash of water.

Making tempering:

  • Heat the ghee in a small pan on another stove.

  • Now add cloves, cinnamon stick and dried red chili and cook for 30-40 seconds.
  • Then add curry leaves and hing.
  • Immediately add this tadka to the simmering fajeto.

  • Now remove and discard the seeds.
