Sambar Recipe


  • Tamcon 1 TableSpoon
  • Mustard Seeds 1 TableSpoon
  • Vegetables as needed
  • Turmeric pinch
  • Salt to taste
  • Toor Daal 1 cup
  • Curry Leaves 2-3
  • Ghee 2 TeaSpoon

Preparation Method

  1. Boil toor daal and mash.
  2. Boil tamcon in water until dissolved.
  3. Take the vegetables, slightly fry them, and add them to this tamarind water. Add a little salt and turmeric and boil.
  4. When vegetables are soft, add the toor daal paste and wait until the mixture boils again. Lower flame.
  5. Add curry leaves, the Masala mixture, salt and boil for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.

Optional : Garnish with roasted mustard seeds.

Note : If the toor daal gets burnt, rectify by adding a small ball of cooked rice (it will remove the odour). It will also absorb excess salt, so compensate for this when eating.
