Mixed Vegetable Sambar

My MIL usually makes this sambar on amavasai, so in our house we call it amavasai sambar.
This sambar is verry easy to make, and is very hearty as it has a lot of vegetables.
  • 1 Cup thoor dal
  • 2 cup Mixed Vegetables(cut into 1" pieces)
  • 1 Large onion (chopped)
  • 1 Large tomato (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup tamarind water
  • 1 Tbsp chilly powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder

  • 1 Tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp urad dal
  • 1 Sprig curry leaves
  • 1/2 bunch corriander leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 pinch Asafoetida.
Pressure cook the toor dal and set aside.
For this sambar use country veggies like brinjal,cluster beans, yam,raw banana,ladies finger,etc..(do not use beans ,carrot and other English veggies.)
Heat oil in a kadai, add mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves.
When the mustard seeds pop add onion and saute.
