Notes

For urundai you can add chopped onions as such without grinding along with dal. Don't make the gravy too thick it should be fair enough of pouring consistency(moderately thin). If using country tomatoes then restrict and check for tanginess and make adjustment while adding tamarind extract. I have made big urandai but you can make small according to your need.
