Chennai sambar


Sambar is a lentil based vegetable stew cooked with tamarind pulp. It is popular in South Indian and Sri Lankan Tamil cuisines. A typical south Indian sambar recipe calls for lot of vegetables like pumpkin, bottle gourd, drumstick, okra, onions and tomatoes. This is the most important dish in southern states of India and the meal is not complete without sambar. The recipe shared here is my mom’s recipe. It makes for a great side dish to pair with breakfast or a meal. In this recipe, I have used ready made sambar powder which is available in any grocery shop or super market.
