Tiffin sambar

Here is a variation to the conventional sambar prepared at home. This version is what is supposed to be “hotel sambar”. Guess what, you don’t need tamarind for this. You can make a fine dish for idlies and dosas just with onions and tomatoes as the main ingredients in just five steps.Check this out.

1. Pressure cook 1 onion, 1 tomato (all finely chopped)and 1 cup dal.
Allow them to be cooked well so that they can be mashed well.

2. Grind 1 onion,1 tomato, 1 spoon dhaniya powder, 2 tspns shredded coconut without adding water and keep it aside.

3. In a kadai, heat oil. Add mustard, curry leaves(finely chopped),2 green chilies(chopped),urad dal(1 tspn),cumin seeds/jeera(1 tspn). Saute 1/4 onion(finely chopped).

4. Mix the ground mixture with the pressure cooked items and allow it to boil for 2 to 3 mins till the raw smell of tomatoes vanish.

5. Garnish with the fried items mentioned in Step 3.

Sambar is ready to be served with idlis or dosas. 🙂
