Make them to small balls and keep aside.



 

Step 2:


Heat a pan with 2 tb spoons of oil. Saute it with mustard seeds and fenugreek. Once they splutter add the hing powder and turmeric powder. Pour the tamarind juice to it. Add required salt.

When the raw smell of tamarind goes add 4 tea spoons of sambar powder. 

When the sambar powder mixes well with tamarind water drop the lentil balls gently one by one into the boiling gravy.

Keep the flame medium. When the balls get boiled they will start floating.

Switch of the stove and garnish with curry leaves.
