Cut the ouu (elephant apple) into small pieces. Heat oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Add curry leaves, red chilies and minced ginger and fry it for 2 minutes. Add cut ouu pieces, turmeric powder, salt, and mix it properly until ouu becomes light brown in colour.

In Odisha ouu is available in Oct-Nov (Kartika masa).
