Again I am here with blogging marathon 12 th edition group 2. This time I have chosen delicious dalls as my theme for seven days. Munakkaya pappu(drumstick dall) I got this recipe from my amma(mother). This is a good combination with rice and dosa and even with chapathi. Here I go with the recipe.

Drumstick -- 2 cut in to 2 inch pieces
Onion -- cut in to big pieces
Tomato -- 1 big cut in to big pieces
Green chillies -- 2 slit
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder -- 1/2 tea sp
Turmeric powder -- 1/2 tea sp

Oil --- 1 tab sp
Mustard seeds -- 1/2 tea sp
Cumin seeds -- 1/2 tea sp

1.Mix both tour and chana dal wash and soak in 2 cups of water for 1/2 hour.
2. Fry all masala ingredients except asafoetida one by one till they turn in to light golden and starts giving a nice aroma.
3.Add asafoetida and set a side to cool then grind in to fine powder,set a side.
4.extract thick pulp from soaked tamarind and set a side.
5Now start cooking dall when dall fully cooked add drumstick pieces (we are not going to mash this dall so keep on cooking by adding all other ingredients one by one)
6. When drumstick pieces are half cooked add tamarind pulp, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, salt to taste. Hear If need you can add 1/2 cup water and keep on stirring but gently, take care that drunstick pieces should not break.
7. Cook for 5 more minutes then add onion and tomato pieces, slit green chillies give a good stir and cook for 5 minutes.
8. Now add curry leaves, ground masala, jaggery mix well cook for 2 minutes.
9.Heat oil add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, dry red chillies, asafoetida and add this tadka to munakkaya pappu(drumstick dall).
Serve with hot steamed rice, Ghee and pappad.
