Add tamarind juice to it,then asafetida, salt,turmeric,red chili powder,coriander powder and sambar powder..

Allow them to boil for 7 mins..

I dint add rice flour paste for thicker consistency as adding the onion with dal thickened it..(so add dal)

Let it be ter for 5 mins on low to medium..

Drizzle one teaspoon of gingely oil(personal choice for all my kuzhambu and sambar)

Then temper by mixing gingely oil,ghee,mustard seeds and thuvar dal,curry leaves..
