How to Make Veppilai Katti

  • Wash the leaves well, and pat very dry with a kitchen towel.
  • If the citrus leaves are not tender, remove the hard stalk in the middle of the leaf.
  • In a dry-spice grinder, grind finely the following together: ajwain, red chillies, salt, and asafoetida.
  • In a blender, dry-grind (no water) all the leaves till it becomes a moist and crumbly paste.
  • Using a spatula, stir it from time to time in between grinding cycles.
  • Put leaf mixture into a bowl. Add the ground spices, and mix thoroughly.
  • Add enough lime/lemon juice a little at a time so that the mince can be shaped into several walnut sized balls. You may or may not use all the lime juice indicated.
  • Store in a covered container, preferably in the fridge, so that it remains flavourful and moist.
  • Pinch required amounts from each ball to serve with your curd rice.
