Kerala Sambar is a tasty and delicious variation of sambar prepared with mixed vegetables and spices. You can select your own choice of veggies. This is a traditional styled dish, very popular with the Malayalee community in Kerala Cuisine. I have tasted sambar in several places but this authentic dish my aunt makes is my favorite. It goes great with breakfast dishes like dosa, idli and even fits well with hot rice for noon day meals. A bowl of hot rice with crispy pappadoms and Kerala Sambar Easy tops my priority that is relishing and very comforting too. Right from childhood I am a great fan of this vegetarian dish. I was very particular with drumsticks and ladies finger in my childhood days and will never miss it in my dish. You can add your choice of vegetables. Here I have added quite a good range of mixed vegetables here like carrots, potatoes, raw plantains and ladies finger.
Kerala Sambar is a dal based curry dish and the spicy flavors makes it awesome. Sambar dishes vary region wise. I have illustrated one of the easiest and most simplest of sambar dishes that requires no roasting and grinding of coconut. Adding a little tamarind water gives a tangy flavor to the dish that makes the dish even more flavorful. The tanginess and spicy flavors can be adjusted as per individual preferences. Adding a pinch of sambar powder enhances the flavors. I do not opt for store bought sambar powders I go for freshly prepared sambar powders. Fresh coriander leaves are added to Kerala Sambar in the final stage and the vessel is closed so as not to lose the flavors. This is one of the easiest ways to finish off any leftover veggies.
