A spicy and hot side dish. Can me made for a rainy and chilly day. 

Green Chillies - 10 nos
Shallots - 6 nos
Tamarind paste - 1/2 spoon
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - a few
Coriander leaves - a few
salt to taste
Asafodeita powder - 1 tsp
Gingely oil - 3 tsp

Heat 2 tsp of gingely oil in a pan. Fry till it turns golden brown. Remove it from the oil. Add green chilly onion and saute for a while. Grind it along with tamarind paste, half of curry leaves, coriander leaves and salt to a fine paste. At the end add the fired urad dal and grind it again. Heat the remaining 1 tsp of gingely oil add mustard seeds and when it splutters add the asafodeita powder and curry leaves. Add it to the ground paste. 

Makes a great side dish for steaming hot idly and soft dosas.

Note: Depends upon the size of the chillies and the spiciness of it the total number of chillies can be reduced or increased.
