6...Now stove top method...Place a pan on the stove ,add 2 to 3 tbsp oil,and add seasoning materials,mustard,jeera,methi seeds,red chilli slits and fry well for 2 minutes..
7...Add garlic chop to the seasoning,and fry well till the raw smell goes.

8...Add cooked Tur dal with veggies to the seasoning,mix well.
9...Add tamarind juice, and add corriander/Dhania powder,chilli powder,salt,and sambar powder,mix well and let it cook.

10...Check the consistency of the sambar,whether it's thick,dilute it with more water..

11...Add Curry leaves and corriander leaves,after boiling and cooking,in low flame, switch off the stove..

Sometimes ..we can fry the onions and veggies seperately with oil in a pan,and use in sambar..
