Paruppu Urundai Kozhambu

Well this is one of the tam bram recipe. I was so craving to have this last week and ended up making it. This is very healthy and you can just have it with steamed rice.

Ingredients: (serves 4)
Toor Dhal – 1 cup
Sambar Powder – 1 tsp
corriander leaves- 3 tbsp
Salt – 1 teaspoon
Mustard – 1 teaspoon
urad dal -1/4 tsp
chopped tomato - 2
Curry leaves – few
sambar powder- 1 heaped tbsp


Soak toor dal in water for about 2 hours. Wash the dal and drain out the water completely. Put it in a mixie and grind to a thick coarse paste (as you would do for vadai). Add ½ teaspoon salt, sambar powder, a pinch of turmeric powder, few curry leaves chopped to the dal paste. Mix well. Make a small lemon size balls. Set aside.Heat oil in kadai and splutter mustard seeds, urad dal. Then add leaves. Add tomatoes and fry till soft. Add the tamarind paste and sambar powder. Add 3 cups water. Bring to boil. When it starts boiling, add two to three dhal balls at a time and reduce to heat to medium. Allow to boil. Once you finished all the dal urundais, gently turn them with a spoon. Keep the flame to low. Garnish with fresh curry leaves and corriander leaves.
