Sorry folks, long time since I posted recipes. This is a good "saar" or rasam in these days of high cost of pulses! And good for health too.

Coriander seeds : 1 Tbsp
Jeera : 1 tsp
Pepper corns : 1 tsp
Chana dal : 1 Tbsp
Red chillies : 2
Grated coconut : 3 Tbsps
Tamarind : lime size soak in water
For Seasoning : Oil 1 Tbsp, mustard 1/2 tsp,curry leaves 5 or 6

Method : Dry fry all the above (except coconut and tamarind)to golden color and grind to a smooth paste in a mixie with tamarind and coconut and 1/2 cup water. Transfer to a vessel and add 2 cups of water and salt as per taste. Bring to boil. Season with mustard and curry leaves.Serve with hot rice.
