Paruppu Urundai Kuzhambu - (Lentil Balls in Coconut Tamarind Sauce)
My Notes: I was very much skeptical about adding the lentil balls as such in the gravy but it works fine. I've heard from my friends that the balls need to be steamed before adding it to the gravy but I find adding it directly is messfree and easy. Be careful in turning over the balls before its cooked. Also add them only after the water starts boiling and dont forget to simmer after the balls are added. The texture of the balls is purely your choice, we usually like it a bit smooth. You can make it even more coarse too.
