What you need:

Green chillies-4
Fresh chopped coriander
Gram dal or chana dal-1 tablespoon
Cumin seeds-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Tamarind pulp-1 teaspoon

For seasoning: 1 teaspoon mustard seeds, 1 teaspoon cumin seeds and 1 teaspoon black gram dal (splitted urad dal).


How to make:

Wash and slice the capsicum and tomatoes into cubes. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan and add the capsicum, cut green chillies and sugar. Fry them for two minutes on a medium flame and add the cumin seeds and channa dal. Fry them for one more minute and transfer them into a bowl. Now in the same pan, add the tomato cubes and tamarind and cook it for two minutes. Allow it to cool and grind all the fried ingredients into a paste. Add fresh coriander and grind it for 1-2 seconds. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in the pan and add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds and black gram dal and once they start spluttering, add the ground paste to it.
