Soak dried kokum in a bowl of water for half-an-hour. Strain the water and add besan to it.
Mix well and make sure there is no lump left. Heat oil in a pan and add hing, cumin and mustard seeds.
Add red chilli and curry leaves and let it all splutter. Add green chilli and garlic and cook until the raw smell is eliminated.
Add the kokum-besan mix to it and bring it to boil. Add salt as per taste and some sugar to balance the flavours.
