Idli sambar

>> Monday, September 14, 2009

.

Sambar is the traditional & authentic south Indian dish served with almost breakfast menus like idlies, pongal, dosa, vada, upma & so on. We make different varieties of sambar to match the menu. There will be little variations in the consistency & ingredients as well.
I make this variety of sambar especially to serve with Idlies. The consistency will be little thin & would be perfect when served along with the chutneys.
Ingredients :
  1. Toor dal - 1/2 cup
  2. Onion - 1 no
  3. Tomato - 1 no
  4. Green chilly - 2 nos
  5. Ginger - 1 inch
  6. Curry leaves - 1 tbsp
  7. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  8. Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  9. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  10. Chilly powder - 1 tsp
  11. Corrainder powder - 1 tsp
  12. Sambar powder - 1 tsp
  13. Oil - 2 tsp
  14. Water
  15. Salt to taste
  16. Corriander leaves for garnishing

Directions to cook :

# Pressure cook the toor dal (1 cup water) & keep aside.

# Heat oil in the kadai, add mustard seeds and cumin seeds.

# Add finely chopped onions, green chillies, curry leaves & ginger. Saute till golden brown in color.

# Add finely chopped tomatoes, chilly powder, turmeric powder & salt to taste. Saute it for 5 min.

# Add the cooked toor dal, sambar powder & water (sambar should be little thin in consistency). Cook for 3 more mins or until done.

# Garnish with corriander leaves.

Serve with idlies.
