Paruppu Orundai Kozhambhu

I learnt this from an Aunt whom I used to meet in Ashok Nagar park. It prepare this often, whenever guest come , this will be one of the menu. This is an excellent source of protein too since it contains 2 kinds of dhals. My father in law likes this and my daughter too.


Onion – 2
Tomato 1
Tamarind extract 1 cup
Thur Dal – ½ cup
Channa Dhal – ½ cup
Green chili as required
Sam bar powder – 2 tsps
Coriander leaves
For seasoning oil, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, curry leaves,cumin seeds


Soak both dhal for 30 – 40 minutes

Grind it without adding much water.

Add finely chopped onions , green chili, salt, and coriander leaves and make small balls.

Heat oil in pan and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds , fenugreek seeds and curry leaves.

Add tomatoes , sambhar powder and fry it.

Add tamarind extract, salt and boil it.

consistency should be watery , if it is thick add some water.

When the sambar boils add 4 dhall balls , when it comes up you can add more.

Add all the balls , when the balls are cooked it is ready.

garnish with coriander leaves.

Dear Vidhas, the parappu-orundai kozambhu looks yummy and delicious without any deep frying - a must try. Of course, the best thing is how you found it from a friend in the park - wow! Read about your passion for cooking right from the time you were in school, and that you loved to help your mom when she made sweets and snacks during festival times! Many children are disinterested in cooking and simply wait for their moms to announce when the food is ready :).
