About the ground nuts, u can use fresh unroasted ones.. The store bought ground nuts should be soaked over night and then pressure cooked..If the groundnuts are fresh ,cook them directly with a dash of salt.. Dont add the uncooked peanuts to tamarind water, it won’t get cooked…

Soak the tamarind and peanuts separately and also roast the dals the previous night for a hassle-free morning cooking …
