  1. Wash the stems under running water to clean all the mud. Peel them using a vegetable peeler. Cut them into roundels and wash them again. Roughly grind the saunf and peppercorns.
  2. Boil water in a pan, add 1 tsp of salt and toss in the cut stems. Cook for 15 min. Drain and spread on a cotton cloth to dry. Let them dry for atleast 4 to 5 hrs.
  3. Take the dried nadru in a big plate. Add the saunf and the pepper powder, the kalonji seeds, the pickle masala, salt and the jaggery and mix.
