Cubed Veggies-11/2cups [I used a small piece of pumpkin,few beans, a small carrot, couple of broccoli florets, few leaves of cabbage, fist full of peas and a small potato]
Cooked n mashed thoor dhal - 1/4cup
Tamarind juice- 1/4cup
Salt- to taste
To roast n grind
Few curry leaves
1.Dry roast items given under "to roast n grind" table..
2. and grind it to a coarse powder.
3.Wash n cube the veggies into uniform cubes, cook them with enough water, turmeric powder and salt.
4.Add the tamarind juice when the veggies become tender.
5.Once the raw smell of the tamarind juice has gone, add the mashed dhal, adjust the salt, let it boil for a couple of minutes.
6.Add the roasted-ground masala, adjust the water to the desired consistency of the sambar, and let it boil for 5-6 minutes on medium heat.
7.Add 1/2teaspoon of the sugar and put off the flame.
8.Heat oil in a small pan, make the tempering with mustard -cumin seeds and curry leaves. Pour it over the sambar and serve.
This aromatic, spicy n yummy sambar tastes great with Plain Rice/Ven pongal/idli/Any kind of Dosa. We had it with Wheat flour dosa.
