Milagu Kuzhambu

For this month's PPCS I had to do Milagu Kuzhambu  from Shama's blog. This is the first time I am trying this recipe.. Thank you for sharing this Shama.

You Need:

Tamarind - small lemon size soaked in 1/4 cup water for 30 mins

For grinding :
Pepper - 4 tbsps
Jaggery - 2 tsps 
Jeera - 2 tsps
Coriander seeds - 2 tsps 
Channa dal - 2 tsps
Toor dal - 2 tsps
Red chillies - 10
Curry leaves - few
Salt to taste

Tadka :
Mustard and Jeera - 2 tsps each

Heat oil in a pan. Add ingredients for tadka . 
When it splutters , add grinded masala with little water and tamarind juice.
Allow to boil, till the oil separates out .

Original recipe called for garlic, to be added to the ingredients for grinding. I omitted Garlic as I did not have any handy at home. It tasted awesome without the garlic too :)
