Idli sambar -Sambar for Idly dosa -Idli sambar recipe

Idli sambar -Sambar for Idly dosa -Idli Sambar recipe

This sambar is specially made for Idly or dosa . It is very simple and also tastes great with both idly and dosa .You can do this with or without the vegetables. I did not use vegetables as I did not have time in the morning . To the simple sambar recipe-

idli sambarWhite ladybird!!!!! May be he had ujala bath!!

Ingredients needed

Onion -2 finely chopped
Tomato -3 finely chopped ( big and juicy ones)
Moong dal /split yellow green gram -1/4 cup
Green chillies - 2 finely chopped
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Sambar powder -1 tsp( optional )
Salt to taste
Vegetables -1/3 cup (optional)
(mix of carrot, potato, chow chow/chayote)

For the seasoning

Mustard -1/2 tsp
Urad dal -1/2 tsp
Hing - a generous pinch
Curry leaves -little
Oil -3 tsp

Method

sambar for idlyWow!! he has got a friend

Heat oil and add the ingredients for seasoning. Fry onions well, add 2 green chillies, tomatoes and cook for a few minutes. Add veggies at this stage if you are using it. (Add 3 chillies if you are not using sambar powder).

Add dal, salt, turmeric powder, sambar powder,1 cup of water and pressure cook till soft .

When the pressure is released, boil for a few seconds and garnish with coriander leaves .This sambar should be watery, so adjust consistency accordingly.

I will soon share with you another instant sambar for idly which can be done in just 5 minutes.
