This is another recipe from my favourite vegetarian food ustaad, my Padma teacher whom I fondly call Puthri chechy.
Lime/Cherunaranga: 3 cubed (make sure u take off the seeds, otherwise the curry will turn bitter)

Small Onion: 1 sliced
Soak tamarind in water, atleast 2 cups water.

When the gravy thickens, add the sugar or jaggerry and let it boil for a few more minutes.

Serve with Rice and curries.
