Milagu Kuzhambu

It was Sunday Morning and we had woken up a bit late... :) Hmmmm no time for breakfast... straight lunch we decided! We had a heavy day yesterday and our tummies were still kind of full :) So I decided to settle down for a simple lunch and also go easy on our tummies! So finally made Milagu Kuzhambu and had it with masala papad :) It was simple and nice!

Channa Dhal - 2 tsp
Coriander Seeds - 1 1/2 tsp
Peppercorns - 2 tsp

Curry Leaves
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp

How to make?
Extract 2 cups of tamrind water from the tamrind and set aside.
In a pan, add little oil and roast the ingredients under 'Fry and Grind' till golden in color. Grind to a paste with little water.
Add this paste to the tamrind water. Mix the rice flour in tsp water and mix with the tamrind water.
Allow this to boil on low heat for 10 - 15 minutes till the mixture thickens and the flavor blends in.
