Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds : 1/2 tsp
Perungayam/ asafoedita : 1 pinch

Method
---------

1. Pressure cook toor dal, fenugreek and turmeric powder with just enough water for more than 4 whistles. Mash cooked toor dal mixture well and keep it aside.
2.In a pan, heat oil and fry mustard seeds, asafoedita and dry red chiiles.Now add chopped tomatoes and slit green chilles.Saute well until tomatoes are cooked enough.
3.Now add tamarind water to the pan and bring it to a boil.
