Onion-1
Green chilly-1
Tomato-1
Garlic-10cloves
Few curry leaves
Turmeric powder-1/4teaspoon
Shakti Vatha kuzhambu podi-3teaspoons[can be replaced by 11/2teaspoons chili powder + 11/2teaspoons coriander powder]
Coconut milk powder-1tablespoon
Tamarind juice(thick) -1/4cup

Method
Wash and put the soya chunks in boiling water, cook for 3 minutes. Drain them and squeeze out the water and keep it aside. 
Chop the onion and garlic cloves, green chilly and tomato into big chunks.
Heat gingely oil/nallennai in a pan, add the mustard seed and let them pop-up.
Add the methi seeds followed by the onion-garlic-g.chilly and curry leaves(which I didn't add). 
Saute for a while then add the soya chunks and cook for couple of minutes. 
Now add the chopped tomatoes, tamarind water, masala powder  and salt.
Let this boil nicely till the raw smell of the tamarind has gone. Then add the coconut milk powder and adjust the water according to the desired consistency.
Cook for one boil, reduce the heat to low, add the sugar and let the kuzhambu simmer for 4-5 minutes.
Tangy and delicious kuzhambu is ready. Soya chunks will absorb the tamarind juice and will be soft and yummy!
Enjoy the meal maker puli kuzhambu with piping hot rice.
