  • Stir fry the masala ingredients in the oil until they are light gold and fragrant. Transfer to a blender and grind with just enough water to make a smooth paste.
  • In a saucepan, heat the remaining oil.
  • Add the mustard and cumin seeds, and when they splutter, add the curry leaves.
  • Add 1/2 a cup of water and tamarind paste.
  • Bring to a boil and then add tomatoes.
  • When the tomatoes break down slightly, add the ground masala paste.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the dal and "stock" and salt to taste.
  • Bring to a rolling boil and let it boil about 5 minutes.
  • Garnish with coriander and serve hot.
