Now extract thick juice from the tamarind and keep it aside.
Heat the kadai and put oil into it. Add the things one by one in the table 2,the things given for tempering.
Saute them for few mins,till they change colour. I didnt add black channa this time b coz it was out of stock in my kitchen.

  15. Great Taste! Thanks!! Please clarify whether the chanas (Table 2) are to be thrown in after soaking them in water for sometime or what. I feel it would be better after soaking them in water for sometime.
