Add some oil to a hot pan and splutter mustard seeds. Then add curry leaves and red chillies, followed by garlic and diced tomatoes and cook for some time. Add a pinch of turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder and crushed fenugreek, salt and combine well. Add enough water and cook for sometime.
When it boils add tamarind pulp, asfoetida, coriander leaves and crushed pepper. Close the lid and let it boil for sometime.
Serve hot and enjoy... Its a great dish to serve in cold weather, or when you are suffering from a sore throat or runny nose.
