Notes :A complex case. Most of the forms can be traced back to PSDR *aṇal, although ones like Tam. aṇa-r, Mal. aṇṇi suggest the -l may be suffixal. However, the Proto-Nilgiri form, as is seen from the Kota evidence, is *aṇǝg- < *aṇV[ŋ]g-, and in the Nilgiri languages it is only found within the compound *aṇǝg-pal 'molar tooth'. This makes me suspect that the original form may indeed have been *aṇVŋ-, and everything but Kota aṇg actually represents later modifications of the protostem as it kept merging with additional suffixes.
