This is one of the simple recipes and makes a wonderful option instead of your regular sambaar.
I made it the first time when mom was in the US and was pleased with it and most of my friends who tasted it loved it.

Oil : 2 tbs
Turmeric : 1/2 tsp
Mustard & Cumin seeds : 1/2 tsp
Red chillies : 2 to 3
Garlic pods : 2 to 3 crushed

Preparation :

Pressure cook dal and then take a pan and add 1 1/2 tbs of oil to that add onion, once translucent add the ginger garlic paste, green chillies and saute. To this add turmeric, chillie and coriander powder, then add tomatoes and saute untill soft. Once this is done add the tamrind pulp or paste and to this add the dal and some water along with salt and let it boil till all is done. Once done
