Heat oil in a kadai and season mustard.When mustard splutters add curry leaves and onion chopped.
Saute the onion for some time in low flame until the onion becomes soft and fine aroma arises from the sauteed ingredients.
Then add the grinded coconut and salt to it and let it boil.
Finally add the tamarind pulp and boil it for two minutes.

This Ulli Theeyal tastes best if it remains for more time. I even try with dosa, Appam and Idlis. It tastes very good with this breakfast also.
