My most favourite vegetable sambar is here..I can’t talk on anything else now..This sambar filled with full of fresh vegetables is a nutrient and protein packed one which goes well with some hot piping rice and ghee. A ladle full of sambar poured on hot rice served with a papad makes your lunch an unforgettable experience any time..I bet even non-veg lovers would find this sambar a must to munch on their favourite chicken pieces.:)
Am too late to post this wonderful vegetable sambar on my blog and I noticed it very late:)This sambar brings back my childhood memories..As I don’t eat non-veg my mom used to make little amount of sambar and an omlette for me every sunday when she cooks chicken for my family:) Needless to say this is everyone’s favourite!!

Right now writing this post,I feel like having this hot piping sambar for my dinner but I made a decision not to eat rice for dinner 😛 You could also use this sambar as a tiffin sambar accompanied with fluffy idlies and soft dosai.
- If you dont’ like to add more tamarind increase the quantity of tomatoes.
- If you wish you can use some store bought sambar powder else skip it,But I find it tasty without even adding it since the blend of all vegetables give the whole taste.
- You can even soak the bread slices in this hot sambar and have it..Don’t laugh try it out:)
