Rub the seeds to remove the husk, discard the husk.
Grind or blend half into a paste. Heat ghee, add cumin, cardamoms and peppercorns. Saute a little, add the ginger.
When the ginger browns a little, (If you are using ghiya first add the ghiya and saute) add the yoghurt a little at a time, stirring well to avoid scorching. When the oil separates, add coriander, salt, chilli powder and green chillies.
Saute further, add the chironji and turn around to mix well. Add enough water to come up to about 2 cm above the mixture and bring to a boil.
Simmer till the chironji is cooked through. Serve hot garnished with coriander leaves.
