My recipes have always been flexible, but I've had to be even more flexible here.
- Oil (1-4 Tablespoons- it's up to you)
- 1 Tablespoon mustard seed (yellow or black works fine, and you can use less if you live in a place like Tokmok where mustard seed can be a little harder to find)
- 1 tsp cumin seed
- 1/2 tsp red pepper
- 1 tsp turmeric
- A few tablespoons of chopped green onion, shallots, or regular onions
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups yogurt
|When the seeds are mostly finished popping, turn the heat back on, take off the lid, and add the spices. Stir them and fry briefly.|
|Add your chopped onion or whatever and turn the heat to medium and cook for a few minutes. If you're using green onions, just cook for a little while, and cook longer if you're using onions. It really just depends on how soft you want your onions.|
|Add the water and the salt.|
|Keep on stirring.|
Now eat it. It looks prettier with green onions, obviously, so I recommend those. But I also like the oniony-ier flavor of shallots, or I did when I could get them. Regular onions are the easy solution.
