Udipi Sambhar

- recipe by Visitor submitted on 07-17-2008 


            This is the recipe served in the famed Udipi restaurants (the exponents of Mangalorean cuisine worldwide) with dosas and idlis. You do not need sambar powder with this recipe. Omit whichever veges you cannot find. You can make this without veggies too.

Ingredients
Tuvar dal (tuvaram paruppu) - 1/2 cup
Fenugreek seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Urad Dal - 1 teaspoon
Red chilies - 6
Coriander seeds - 1 1/2 tablespoons

Coconut (grated) - 1/4 cup
Shallot onions(small red onions called sambar onions in india) - 25-30 (cleaned and peeled)

Hing (Asaefoetida) - 1 pinch
Green chilies - 2 (slit)
Vegetables of choice (brinjals,carrots, french beans, pumpkin, yam) - 2 cups (chopped into big chunks)
Tamarind pulp - lemon sized ball of tamarind soaked in 1/3 cup of water.
Salt - 1/4 teaspoon (or to taste)
Jaggery or brown sugar - 1 1/2 teaspoons 
Oil - 2 tblsp
Method
1. Cook the tuvar dal till tender then mash it nicely.

11. Add a little water. Cover and cook till the veggies are done.
