In a sauce pan add the oil and do the seasoning. First add the mustard seeds when the oil is hot. Add the hing and curry leaves. Now add the onions and combine well. Take out the pulp from the tamarind and add the juice to the seasoned mixture . Give it a boil . Transfer the ground powder into the boiling kuzhambu and stir continuously . U may add  1 or 2 shallots which is ground to a paste for thickness of the gravy. U may skip coconut also. The thing is, i add coconut to all the kuzhambu i make since i like the flavour. Close it with a lid and let them boil and marry .Add the required amount of salt. Kuzhambu should boil for minimum 5 minutes. For that make sure u add enough water, otherwise everything will be spoiled...
