1 1/2 cup dosakaya/lemon cucumber, remove the inside seeds and cube
1 tbsp senaga pappu/bengal gram
1 tbsp minappa pappu/urad dal/split gram dal
1 tsp cumin seeds/jeera/jeelakara
1-2 green chillis
2 dry red chillis (increase or decrease to suit your spice level)
4-5 curry leaves

1 1/2 tbsps tamarind paste
1/2 tbsp oil
For tempering/poppu/tadka:
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
3-4 fresh curry leaves
1/2 tsp split black gram/minappa pappu
1/4 tsp hing/asafoetida/inguva

2 First grind the spices to a coarse powder. Add tamarind paste and blend once more. Add the dosakaya pieces and salt and grind to a coarse paste. The cucumber should not be made into a paste. A stone mortar is recommended to crush them but you can use a blender too.
