Sambar is made with yellow lentil called pigeon peas - Tuvar dal - toor dal and vegetables.
You can use any vegetables of your choice such as onions, potatoes, tomatoes, brinjals, beans, cabbage, knolkol, raddish etc. you can use any one or a mix of these vegetables.
The sambar powder can be made in large quantities and stored for 6 months or more. I use it most of the time. Of course the freshly made sambar powder has a special taste, which I make once in a while when I have more time.
I am using onions and tomatoes in this recipe. My family loves it.
I am also making fresh sambar powder for this
recipe. You may use 1 1/2 tbsp ready sambar powder instead if you do not have time to make it now.
