Easy Sundal Kadalai Kuzhambu / Easy Channa Gravy with Tamarind and Veggies

Black Channa/Sundal kadalai/Kondai kadalai-1/4cup
Tamarind juice-1/4cup
Brinjal-1 (or) 2
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
To grind
Pepper corns-7
Red chillies-4
Grated coconut-2tablespoons
Fennel seeds-1teaspoon 

Wash and soak the channa over night or at least 8 hours.
Chop the onions into fine pieces. 
Cut the potato into big chunks. Trim the head of the brinjals, make a "+" cut into them.
Keep the potato chunks and brinjals submerged in water till use.
Grind the items to grind with little water to a fine paste.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add in the mustard seeds. Let them pop. 
Now add in the onions and fry till they change in color. 
Add the tomatoes, turmeric powder, cook till the tomato becomes soft.
Add in the veggies along with the soaked channa. 
Fry for 2-3 minutes and add in the tamarind juice and let it boil nicely. 
Now add in the masala paste, enough salt. Adjust the water according to your desired consistency of the kuzhambu.
Add in the sugar, and close the pressure cooker.
Cook for 2-3 whistles in medium heat.
Let the pressure subside by itself, open the cooker, garnish the kuzhambu with cilantro.
Quick and tangy delicious kuzhambu is ready! It goes well with plain rice, idli and dosa. The veggies and channa taste grate as we pressure cook them with the masala.
This kuzhambu can be done in just about 30 minutes! Isn't it simple?! :)
