1 crushed garlic clove

1 tsp salt

1 cup roasted salted cashew nuts (snack type)

juice of 1 small lemon

1. Heat veg oil in a large wok-style pan. add the fenugreek seeds- as soon as they go a little golden and start fizzing throw in the asafoetida and allow to fizz for 5 seconds.

2. Add the crushed garlic and cook until soft.

3. Now add the chopped marrow, the turmeric chilli, sugar and allow to cook on a medium heat until the dish has begun to dry out. The marrow should become nice and soft.
