Learnt From:

I learnt sambar from my Mom.


Toor dal --- ½ cup
Turmeric --- a pinch
Tamarind --- small lemon size
Green chilies --- 5 medium small
Onion --- ½ of the big one
Potato --- 1
Carrots --- 3
Drum Sticks --- 2
Sambar powder --- 3 tsp
Coriander leaves

For Seasoning:

Oil --- 2 spoons
Urad dal --- ½ tsp
Mustard seeds --- ¾ tsp
Cumin seeds --- ¼ tsp
Red chilly --- 1
Curry leaves --- 7-8
Hing --- a pinch


Clean the toor dal in the pressure cooker for 2 times with water. Add a pinch of turmeric to the pressure cooker. Add thrice the amount of water to the dal. Keep it for 3 whistles.

In the meanwhile, chop the vegetables. Peel the skin of potato and carrots. Chop … green chilies, onions, carrots, drum sticks and potato.

By tht time you get the whistle. Transfer the dal to a deep pan in which you are going to prepare sambar.

In the cooker add all the chopped vegetables. Add 2 cups of water, enough salt to the vegetables and a pinch of turmeric powder. Keep it for 3 whistles. Wait till the pressure goes away.

In the mean while, take a full fist of tamarind. Clean it with water and add little water and heat it. (in microwave keep it for 30 sec.). Take tamarind juice by adding water to it

Mean while, in a small bowl add sambar powder. Mix it well without any lumps by adding little water.

When the whistle comes… transfer the stuff of pressure cooker to the dal. Add tamarind juice, sambar mix & enough salt to the dal. Heat it on the stove for one boil. Keep it in sim for 5-10 minutes. Then turn off the heat.

In the mean while, heat one spoon of oil in a pan. Add and toast seasoning one by one like … urad dal, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, red chilly, curry leaves and hing. Add seasoning to the sambar.
Add coriander leaves.
