Select a ripe wood apple by sniffing

Scoop the pulp inside, by shell breaking

Add some oil to a hot pan

Fry some red chillies, Chana Dal and Udad, till they tan

Now add mustard seeds, hing  and curry leaves

Also keep aside some chopped coriander leaves

When the seasoning splutters, grind to a coarse paste

Add the scoop of wood apple and blend again, after adding salt to taste

Take it out in a small jar and add chopped coriander

Serve with hot rice, you just sampled a forgotten dish dear!
