Recipe:
Remove the seeds from gooseberry and grind the gooseberry pieces along with coconut, green chilly, cumin seeds, black pepper into smooth paste by adding required amount of water. (If it is frozen coconut, use hot water while grinding.)

Add this ground coconut to a vessel. Add buttermilk, required amount of water, salt(if required) to the same vessel and mix them well. (If it is yogurt/curd, put it in a mixer for few seconds before adding it to Tambli.)

Put mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, broken red chillies and ghee in a pan. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and add it to Tambli. Mix well before serving. It goes well with rice.
