This is a very easy recipe and can be prepared within minutes. Any kind of vatral (dried vegetable) can be used.


Sundakkai Vatral - 2 tbsp
Sambar Powder - 2 tsp
Thin tamarind extract - 1/2 cup
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt - as needed
Rice flour - 1tsp

Seasoning Ingredients:
Fenugreek seeds - 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Dry red chillies - 2
Toor dal - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/2 tsp


Heat oil and add the seasoning ingredients. Fry till the mustard starts to splutter and then add the vatral and fry in low heat for about 10min. Add sambar powder and fry for 5min and then add the tamarind extract. Let it come to a boil. Mix rice flour with 1 tbsp water and add it to the boiling mixture. Allow to cook till it becomes thick. Remove from heat and serve with rice and papad.
