Step 1

Soak tamarind in water for 10 minutes and extract the pulp.

Step 2

Cook the toor dal by adding little ghee and water in a pressure cooker for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Dry roast chilly powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and asafoetida. Keep this aside.

Step 4

Put the vegetables, green chillies, shallots and salt into the cooked dal. Add the heated powders and tamarind juice.

Step 5

Add enough water(remember not to add more water). 2 whistles are enough for the vegetables to cook well.

Step 6

Heat oil in a pan. Splutter fenugreek seeds, mustard, vattal mulaku and curry leaves. Put into the curry. Garnish with coriander leaves(optional). Nadan sambar is ready.
