- Mix sugar with water. Let it simmer on medium heat, keep stirring in between, till one string of consistency. (To check 1 string consistency of the syrup, put one drop between your forefinger and thumb, slowly move fingers apart. If one thin string or thread is there, that means syrup is ready).

- Add red chili powder, cumin powder and asafetida to the jar. Mix properly.
