This is a great vegetarian curry with a blend of heat and spices. It goes great with white rice or naan bread.

  2. Sprinkle the asafoetida powder over the seeds and add the curry leaves. Stir the onions, green chilli peppers and turmeric powder into the mixture; cook and stir until the onions are softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
