A pinch of fenugreek seeds
3-4 Red Chilies
1-2 Green chilies
Few Curry Leaves
Small Lemon sized Tamarind
Cut tomatoes into small pieces.
Take 2 tsp of oil in a small skillet and when oil is heated add urad and channa dals. Once the dals are fried add jeera, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, hing, red chilies, and chopped green chilies and curry leaves.
Let cool. Transfer the tadka into a blender jar and curry leaves and some oil to the serving bowl. Add 2 tsp of oil and when it is warm add the cut tomatoes and cook till the tomatoes are nicely done. Add tamarind, turmeric, salt and cook till they all come together. Remove from flame and let cool.
Dry grind tadka first. This will make the grinding part easy, and then add the tomato paste and chopped coriander. Grind coarsely, taste for salt and adjust seasonings.
Transfer contents into a serving bowl. Mix well.
