    Hi Vijaya

    Telaga pindi is used only for women who just delivered a baby. I don’t prepare it here.
    I happened to get a pack from India and I used this as I needed to update a recipe on that.
    This is a remain of oil from ganugu if you know about that. That remain they grind it with jeela karra , red chilli and a little salt. You don’t get it in US.I hope this helps…
