coconut oil
jaggery 1/2 inch piece

Grind ginger and garlic into paste.(You can chop them too as small pieces )Cut small onions into two. Heat oil, splutter mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds.Saute garlic and ginger paste for few seconds or more till the raw smell goes. Then add curry leaves, chopped tomatoes, small onions,chopped green chillies and all the powders and salt. Saute for a while. Add tamarind pulp and water and bring to boil. Reduce water after adding jaggery piece. If you want too thick inji curry, roast some parboiled rice , powder it and add to the gravy.You can keep this fridge for many days. The inji curry preparation can keep out side too for about four more days. If you don't like more sour things, reduce the amount of tamarind.
