Pour the hot water over the tamarind and leave it to soak for about 10-15 minutes.
Squeeze out all the water and push the tamarind through a sieve to extract the pulp.
Wash the lentils, put in a saucepan with the measured water, bring to the boil and cook over a medium heat.
When the lentils are soft, add the salt, turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander, crushed black peppercorns, chillies and garlic and then mash the dhaal down with a wooden masher.
Add the tomato quarters and the tamarind pulp and cook for about 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the corn oil in a saucepan, add the cumin seeds, curry leaves and green chillies and fry for 1 minute.
Pour the mixture over the dhaal, and serve hot.
