Category :Vegan, Jain, gluten free,  Protein rich
Preparation Time : 5 min.
Cooking Time: 10-12 Min.
Skill level : easy
Ingredients :
1 ts oil(optional)
1/4 c chanadal
1 c Peanuts
1/4 c toordal
1/4 c moongdal
1/4 c urad dal
10-12 peppercorns
1/2" of tamarind piece
3-4 red chilli (you can adjust spicyness according to your taste)
1/2 ts turmeric
salt as needed

1. First roast chanadal slightly with or without oil
2. Then add toordal and peanuts
3. When it reaches a very light brown color at medium low heat, then add urad dal, moongdal, tamarind,         peppercorns, and coriander seeds.
4. When it starts to release an aroma and turns goldenish brown, add chilli and turmeric and turn the heat off.
5. Keep moving the ingredients in the pot around otherwise it may burn since pot will be hot.
6. When it cools down, add salt as desired and grind it into powder. Some people like it fine but I feel the coarse gives more texture and is fragrant.
7. Store in airtight container.

=> For multiplying the recipe you don't need extra oil unless it's very large batch
