Most of us love to prepare and eat this delicious dish right? I will try to present my version of recipe for this delicious dish.


I have spent couple of years in Bangaluru and being a Gujarati I preferred to eat Roti, Dal, Rice and Sabzi for day to day meal. At that time it was really tough to find Gujarati food in Bangaluru and it was costlier for me as I was not earning that much at that time :). So I turned to South Indian Food and instantly started liking it. Sambar is the necessity with almost all the South Indian Food, they are all not accomplished without it.
