The complete Thali

Mulangi Sambhar


Toor Dal - 1 cup
Red Chilli powder - 3 tbsp

Tamarind Pulp - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste 
Curry leaves and Coriander leaves
Onion - 1/2 cut into thin slices
Oil and mustard seeds for tempering 
Hing - a pinch

Method :

Pressure cook the Toor Dal with Curry leaves, Coriander leaves and a pinch of Turmeric Powder
Slice the Radish into thin pieces and boil them separately
Soak tamarind in half cup of water
In a heavy bottomed kadai, take some oil and heat it 
When it is hot enough add the mustard seeds followed by curry leaves
After mustard seeds have sputtered add the sliced onions and saute well
Add the tamarind pulp, boiled radish, red chili powder, turmeric powder and salt 
Mix well and let this mixture boil well till the raw flavor of red chili powder is gone
