andhra style pappu recipe

the main taste of the andhra style tomato pappu lies in the tomatoes. to get nice tangy taste to the dal take sour tomatoes. the quantity of the tomatoes can be increased based on your dal quantity. to get nice tasty pappu recipe add more garlic and correct amount of tamarind.

i have added tamarind directly into the tomato pappu, if you dont want to add like this then skip this step and soak tamarind in warm water for 15 mintues and extract the juice by squeezing tamarind in the water and add this tamarind juice after you added dal in the tempering.
