HOW TO PREPARE : - Soak the tamarind in water for 20 to 30 minutes. When it becomes nice and soggy, squeeze out the seeds. Then drain the water and set it aside. Take a pan and heat the oil. When the oil is very hot add the cloves and saute briefly. Then add the jaggery, sugar, black pepper powder, red chilly powder, tamarind water, roasted cumin powder and salt. Cook on a medium flame for a while. Stir continuously so that no lumps are formed and all the ingredients mix well. Remove from flame and let it cool. Once its cool put it in a blender and make a fine paste. It will be watery and so drain it once. Now pour the drained water into the pan and simmer and cook till it becomes a thick paste.
