To temper

Method
Peel the skin of the peerkangai (ridged gourd) and cut it into small pieces.
Heat oil in a pan, add the channa dal. Fry it till it becomes golden in colour, then add in the red chillies and onion, garlic & tamarind.
Fry till the onions become transparent, add the peerkangai (ridged gourd) and fry for 4-5minutes. (The veggie should be cooked) 
Let it cool.
Once cooled down completely, grind it with enough salt.( no water required for grinding) 
Heat little oil, make the tempering with mustard seeds-urad dal-curry leaves(which I didn't have by then) n pour it on the chutney.
