  125      g             (4 oz) unripe fruit, such as green mango,
                         gooseberries,
                         tart plums or grapes
    6                    dried red chilies
                         a small piece of trassi
    3      cloves        garlic
    1                    onion
    5      ml            (1 tsp) fish sauce
    1      tbsp          soft brown sugar
                         lime juice
 
 Chop the unripe fruit. Remove the seeds from the chilies and chop.  Wrap the 
 trassi in foil and grill until it darkens, or cook in a  preheated oven at 350 
 degrees for a few minutes. Then, either  crumble and pound, or process it with 
 the other ingredients,  adding lime juice to dilute and to taste. Store in a 
 jar in the  refrigerator for a few days.
