Another great recipe snagged from
http://www.asdearassalt.blogspot.com/

This stuff is addictive. After I made this dish I mixed up a batch of
the spices, now it's ready to use in a moment.

I looked and looked for the asafoetida powder and couldn't find it.
After googling it I was so happy I didn't find it. It's also called
devil's dung, just to give you an idea as to it's odor before it's
cooked.

The recipe called for 3 corn cobs boiled in salted water, cut into
chunks and a lot of different spices.

fry well. Then add the ginger and garlic pastes.

Lovely blend of spices. Note the chili powder is to taste so you
control the heat level. I used a teaspoon and it has a kick to it.
