Ginger Kolambhu

Ginger has been all time favourite spice which I don't forget to add in all of my recipes :-)
I made this Ginger kolambhu which I want to share with you all.
Here goes the recipe:
Ginger - chopped finely
Fenugreek seeds - 1/4 tsp
Channa dal - 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
a pinch of hing
Green chillies - 3
Curry leaves - a little bunch
Tamrind extract - 1/2 tsp
Jaggery - 1/2 cup
Gingely Oil 
Heat oil in Kadai and add mustard seeds, once it splutters, add fenugreek seeds, chana dal, hing.
Once they turn slightly brown, add chopped ginger. Let it fry till it leaves its flavor.
Then add curry leaves, green chillies & salt.
Now its time to add 1 cup of water & tamarind extract.
Once the mixture has come to a boil, add jaggery. Pour 1 tp of gingely oil over the kolambhu and off the stove. 
Ginger kolambhu is ready to be served.
It goes well with Venpongal or Dosa. I made for Spinach-Ginger Dosa :-)
