Drumstick Sambar



We have been trying so many new recipes that we forgot the basic one, Sambar, the elixir of very Tamilian. Our motto: Eat sambar, drink sambar, sleep sambar.



Ingredients:

Drumstick - 1 0r 2
Toor dal - 1/2 cup
Onion- 1
tomato -1
Sambar powder - 2 tsp
salt as needed
turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
asafoetida - a large pinch

For tempering:
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
urad dal- 1 tsp
fenugreek seeds- 1/4 tp


Method:

Pressure cook the dal along with turmeric and asafoetida till they are well cooked.
Heal oil in a saucepan and temper the ingredients mentioned.
Add the onions and saute them till done. Add the tomatoes followed by the drumstick and cook each of them.
Add the sambar powder and sprinkle some water and cook for 5 to 10 mins.
Then once the pressure is released, remove the dal and mash them with a ladle.
Then add the dal to the sambar and bring it to a boil and add water as needed.
Sambar is ready and is great with steamed rice, dosa and idly.

Sambar is one such comfort dish. Perfect with any tiffin and rice and with drumstick is really very flavorful.
