Parupu urundai kozhambu / Paruppu urundai kuzhambu

click here for a detailed recipe of Paruppu Urundai Kuzhambu.

Parupu urundai kuzhambu or lentil dumplings in tamarind and coconut sauce, is a traditional recipe from TamilNadu. The sauce can be altered according to your taste, by varying the spice level. But the lentil dumplings are almost the same standard version. If your ground mixture turns out watery add a bit of rice flour before it is steamed. But it is tastier better if the lentil dumplings are cooked in the sauce itself. For that in a non-stick pan, add a teaspoon of oil and fry the mixture till it is hard enough to roll into small balls and by then all the water would have been evaporated and the mixture is half cooked. Now add the lentil dumplings in the sauce and allow it cook fully. Serve with hot steamed rice and pappad.
