3.Wash n cube the veggies into uniform cubes, cook them with enough water, turmeric powder and salt.
4.Add the tamarind juice when the veggies become tender.

5.Once the raw smell of the tamarind juice has gone, add the mashed dhal, adjust the salt, let it boil for a couple of minutes.

6.Add the roasted-ground masala, adjust the water to the desired consistency of the sambar, and let it boil for 5-6 minutes on medium heat.
