In a pan, put urad dal,red chilis and hing with 2 spoons of oil and fry till dal turns reddish on slow fire. Add the coconut and fry for a second. Keep it aside. Blend the fried mixture,salt, tamarind and the cooked peel together into paste in a blender. You can use some water if needed.
In a deep pan put the remaining oil,onions and curry leaves and fry on slow fire till crispy. Add the blended mixture into that. Let it boil for 2 or 3 minutes. Use a deeper pan as it spills allover the stove while boiling. Once it becomes thick,put off the fire. Serve this as a dip or side dish.
