For tamarind pulp:

  • Soak tamarind in water, crush well to extract pulp, set aside.Crush garlic roughly.
  • Heat oil in a kadai - add mustard seeds, let it crackle then add curry leaves let it splutter.Add crushed garlic and red chillies saute for a minute then add small onion along with salt.Saute till it becomes golden in color.
  • Strain and add tamarind pulp along with little water let it boil and cook until its thick and saucy.
  • Finally add jaggery powder, give a quick mix and switch off.


  • The spice level is a bit high for us, if you feel so reduce 4 to 3 red chillies.
  • Adding jaggery powder balances the taste, so don't skip it.
