How to Make Pumpkin Kuzhambu with Fresh Ground Masala

  • Stir fry the ingredients for the ground masala (except the coconut) in oil until they are toasted and lightly golden. Transfer to a blender.
  • In the same pan, fry the coconut until it just begins to brown.
  • Add to the blender. Grind the masala with just enough water to make a fairly smooth paste.
  • For the sambar:
  • Heat oil in a large saucepan.
  • Add the cumin and mustard seeds and asafoetida.
  • When the seeds splutter, add curry leaves and then tamarind extract plus 1 cup water.
  • Let the water come to a boil, then add the ground masala.
  • Bring to a boil, turn down the heat and let it simmer for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the cooked pumpkin pieces and stir in.
  • Add the cooked tuvar dal and salt to taste. Bring it to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Add jaggery and stir in.
  • If the sambar is too thick, add some water.
  • Serve hot with rice.
