Those who consistently leave home with their kajal eyeliner will love this recipe.


  • 7-8 almonds
  • Diya (a little clay vessel)
  • 2 glasses
  • A few drops of oil, such as almond or castor oil
  • Steel plate
  • A spoon
  • A container


Put some almonds in the diya and roast them until they are thoroughly charred. Hold the diya with the flaming almonds between the two glasses, and place them at a comfortable distance.

Ensure the steel plate hovers directly over the diya by setting it on the glasses. If you want to collect enough soot for the kajal, keep the container from getting too far away from the Diya. Hold off extinguishing the diya until the flame has completely burned out. Then, wait two hours before handling the plate again. You may flip it over as soon as the plate has cooled thoroughly. Soot should cover the inside of the container. The soot may be removed by placing just a few drops of almonds or castor oil on the plate and then scraping it off. Blending the soot and oil together should provide a thick paste. Put the concoction in a compact storage container. Add almond or castor oil if you prefer a thinner or thicker kajal. It also works great as a liner.
