Grind ginger and garlic together to a smooth paste by adding tamarind little by little.The paste looks like the below picture.
There is jaggery in the centre in the above picture.Mix the jaggery well with the ground paste.
Now take a kadai add oil and add mustard and when mustard splutters switch of the stove and add hing as the oil is hot now add the ground content to the oil and mix well with salt and chilly powder and turn on the stove and keep mixing till the oil and the ground content mixes well.Turn off the stove when the oil seperates.This whole process would just take 5 minutes.
