Vadu Mangai / Mavadu project - 3

Everyday after my bath, I gave the bottle a gentle shake so that all juices from the vadu could react with the salt. Slowly the dry salt-filled bottle was filled with aromatic liquid. hmmm....

Unfortunately, I could not record the further magic as I was travelling. But yes, do have couple of photos to show what I did next.

In a kadai, add few drops of gingelly oil and roast couple of red chilles .  

After the chillies are cooled powder them along with few mustard. Put the powder inside the jar containing the mangai. Over the due course of time, the flavour and the spice penetrates the vadu and soon you'll get to enjoy the vadu mangai.
