1 tsp fenugreek seeds
1 small piece asafoetida
tamarind lump (big marble size)
1 small piece haldi
15 red chillies (long variety)
4 tsp oil
1 piece gur (lime size)
1 sprig curry leaves

Method :
Chop suran into small cubes. Wash and boil in the water till it becomes soft.
Roast 1 tsp mustard, asafoetida, coriander, red chillies and haldi with a little oil.
Grind them together with tamarind, adding a little water.
To the cooked suran bits add gur and salt.
Combine the masala. Boil well. Take out from flame.

Thambude can be prepared by the same method using seasoned jack combined with raw mango or 2-3 hog-plums.
Tamarind is not required in that case.
