Pressure cook tur dal with 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder for 3 whistles or until soft. Mash it well and keep it aside.
Heat oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters add fenugreek seeds (vendhayam), hing and curry leaves.
Now add brinjal, drumsticks, sambar powder, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder and saute for a few seconds.
Add 1 1/2 cup of water, needed salt and cook on medium heat till the vegetables become tender.
Once the vegetables are cooked, add mango pieces, cooked tur dal and 3/4 cup of water.
Simmer and cook for a few minutes until the sambar thickens slightly. The sambar should not be too thick nor too watery. So adjust adding water accordingly.
