1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp powdered jaggery
1 1/2 tsp salt to taste
1 1/2 cups sliced avarakkai
1 medium sized tomato, quartered

Spice paste
3 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp husked black gram
1 tsp husked bengal gram
4 dried red chillies
2 tsp coriander seeds
3/4 tsp black peppercorns
1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds

2 tbsp dry coconut, grated
1 tsp rice grains

1 tbsp ghee
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds

2. Soak tamarind in 1 cup water for 10 minutes. Extract juice and discard pulp.
3. Heat oil for spice paste in a frying pan. Add remaining ingredients for spice paste. Fry over low heat, tossing gently, till dals turn golden and chillies and spices are fragrant. Grind to a smooth consistency, gradually adding 1/2 cup water.

5. Add avarakkai and tomato. Lower heat, stirring gently, cover pan and simmer for 10 – 12 minutes till the raw aroma of tamarind disappears and avarakkai are tender.
6. Mix in dal and spice paste. Add more water if sambar is too thick. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, till well blended.
