    alice Dave's Note:

    This is an amazing authentic dish. Very easy to make. I got this recipe once again from my cooking guru, Rupali. Everything she touches turns to gold, and this recipe is certainly gold. After the amazing flavor, the thing I love most about her recipe is that it's so easy to make. Very quick. All of these ingredients are available at any indian grocery store.

    1. 1
      Chop all the vegetables finely. Drumsticks should be kept 2 inches long. Put veggies in a pressure cooker with the Toor dal and turmeric powder. Add enough water to cover the vegetables. Cook for about 20 minutes.
    2. 2
      While this is cooking soak the Tamarind in warm water. With your hand, loosen the pulp in the water then remove the pods.
    3. 3
      Open the pressure cooker and check the dal to make sure it is thoroughly cooked. Add about 2 heaping tablespoons of Sambhar masala. Also add the coconut, jaggery, tamarind water, and salt to taste. Stir.
    4. 4
      Heat the ghee in a small pan, add asafetida powder and cumin seeds. Allow to splutter. Add the curry leaves, red chillies, cilantro, 1 teaspoons of sambhar powder. Add to mixture.
    5. 5
      Add salt, extra Sambhar and jaggery as needed. Make sure the mixture is very soupy. Serve with Idli and coconut chutney. Yum!
