You can also add dry tamarind to it only if you opt more sourness. I ignored as the sorrel leaves from my garden were sour.
Turn off the flame and transfer the mixture to a dry plate.
Heat oil in a kadai. On a low-medium flame ,fry the sorrel leaves until it turns tender. Add salt to it and mix well. Turn off the flame once done.
Now in a dry mixie jar,make a coarse powder of the roasted mixture by adding some salt.
