By somehow we Gujju’s warmth to eat dishes as dinner 😀 in case you are Gujju or know any Gujju, by then you perceive what I am expressing.

At any rate when I am making this equation at home I make lively onion tomato chutney and serve it with dosa. It extra bundle of time and taste extremely incredible too. When I am making Dosa’s on week’s end, I don’t miss the sambar. I made sense of how to make sambar from my Mom who carried on an unrivaled bit of her life in South India and acknowledges how to plan average south indian sustenance.

I got my sambar masala from Coimbatore where you can get amazingly real sambar masala. Nevertheless if you don’t have sambar masala arranged at home, its extremely easy to make if you have right flavors. I will share the equation of sambar masala soon.

The sambar served close by dosa is one of a kind in connection to the one served nearby rice known as sambar sadam. This sambar is neither too thick nor runny. In like manner the drumstick used in sambar taste it essentially amazing. There are a wide scope of strategies for arranging sambar. Other than this dosa sambar equation that I am sharing today, I similarly make another assortment of sambar recipe with lots of vegetables. That mix vegetable sambar is typically given rice. But a huge bit of sambhar dishes are made with lentils like toor dal/arhaar dal, there is an assortment organized in Tamil Nadu that doesn’t have lentils rather it is made just from vegetables and flavors. This sambar is known as Kuzhambu.
