Recipe of sambar (a)

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Tamarind  1/2 Teaspoons
Toor Dal  1 Cup
Turmeric Powder  1/2 Teaspoons
oil  2 Teaspoons
Salt   To Taste
dry red chilies  5 Numbers
Curry Leaves  8 Numbers
onion  1 Small
mustard seeds  1/2 Teaspoons
asafoetida  1/2 Teaspoons
fenugreek seeds  1/2 Teaspoons
tomato  1 Large
sambar powder  2 Teaspoons
chopped cilantro leaves  1/4 Teaspoons


Soak the tamarind in 1 cup water for 20 minutes. Squeeze it out, adding water little by little to prepare 1 cup of juice.

Choose a heavy cooking pot. Wash and clean the dal. Boil 2 cups of water and add the dal, turmeric powder and 1 teaspoon of oil. As the dal boils, skim off the foam and discard. Boil until the dal is soft and then mash it coarsely. If needed, add more water as it is boiling but do not let it get too watery. If you use a pressure cooker it will take about 5 minutes.
