Mala, Not sure if you are still blogging - i had bookmarked you some time ago since I'm also a hebbar iyengar. I'd like to suggest improvement in the steps. For ex. in step 1 you say wash toordhal and tomato and place it in pressure cooker, it sounds like you place them together. With our children growing up here, they will take it literally , you mean to place dhal only in pressure cooker right? same kind of distinction between adding malakapudi, let it boil then add tamarind not at the same time :) these small tips are what made biggest taste differences when I started learning them hard way :)

@ Arvind.. You are welcome. Glad I could be of help to you.

@ Snavile.. I hope you understand that this is not "THE" definitive way of making any dish. Everyone has their own recipes and methods they follow. In "MY BLOG" I have put / written my way of doing this recipe. I am glad you have your own way of doing this dish. I would suggest you to make a blog of your own, so users are helped by your "way of doing things" rather than trying to put down others. Anyway thanks for reading my blog.
