IngredientsRaw tamarind pods – 150 gm
Bengal gram flour – 1 ½ cups
Rice flour – ½ cup
Cumin & fenugreek seeds powder – ½ tsp each
Green chilies – 8
Curry leaves – 20
Turmeric – a pinch
Oil – 2 tbsp
Salt – to taste

Boil tamarind pods in water and extract thick juice from its pulp.  Pan-fry the cumin & fenugreek seeds without using oil.  Let it cool down & grind into powder.  Also, pan-fry the two flours together without using oil and keep it aside.  Heat oil in a deep vessel like Handi and prepare tadka sautéing cumin, mustard, fenugreek seeds, curry leaves & slit green chilies.  Add the tamarind juice extracted, salt, turmeric and allow it to boil.  Meanwhile, mix the fried flours & the ground powder using water just to make it into a running consistency.  Ensure there are no lumps of flour formed.  Once the juice has boiled, add this batter to it stirring the juice simultaneously.  This is to avoid the formation of lumps.  Allow it to boil for two minutes & turn off the heat.  Serve it with jowar roti or rice.
