paruppu urundai kuzhambu recipe - lentil balls in tamarind based sauce.this is one of my favorites and i tried many times after marriage.I usually follow my Amma's recipe where she steam cook the balls in idli cooker and then add it to the kuzhambu.But after hearing that steaming cannot be necessary,you can add the balls as it is in kuzhambu and cook that in that kuzhambu itself.It seems to be interesting and i did not hesitate to give a try on that method,because i already tried kadhi gole,which is a Maharastrian delicacy where the same lentil balls are cooked in yogurt based sauce.

I already shared a recipe which is made before marriage,check that urundai kuzhambu recipe too.for a change, i made this with channa dal/split chick peas rather than going with usual tuvar dal.this tastes amazing and V loved this one and this makes both of us nostalgic.we thought of sharing old memories about this kuzhambu and enjoyed a lot.

coconut and fennel seeds paste makes the recipe more tastier and add the balls once it came to boil after adding the coconut paste.
