sambar sadam     
   When I posted keerai poriyal recipe, the background item ‘sambar sadam’ was catchy to some of you. Special effort from Sharmi to post this recipe for sambar sadam,as she always asked me to post it soon and if I ever not post this now,she would squeeze my neckFeeling beat up.I do nothing special,I almost make similar to arachuvitta sambar and mix it with cooked rice and dal,that's it..
 
Sambar Rice

Sambar Sadam recipe

Indian Lunch
Prep Time: 10 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins    Serves: 3

Ingredients

Rice   1/2 cup 
Toor dal  1/3 cup 
Tamarind  marble size 
Mixed veggies or vegetable of your choice  As needed 
Shallots/small onion,peeled  1/2 cup 
Green chillies  2-3 
Tomato  1 
Sambar powder(ready made)  1/2 tsp 
Turmeric  1/8 tsp 
Asafoetida 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves  1 sprig 
Coriander leaves,chopped  2 tblsp 
Jaggery  1/2 tsp 

To roast and grind to coarse powder

Red chillies,long variety 4
Channa dal 1 tblsp
Coriander seeds 1 & 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds 1/4 tsp
Coconut 2 tblsp

To temper:

Oil/ghee 1 tblsp
Mustard 3/4 tsp
Jeera 1 tsp
Asafoetida 1/4 tsp

Method:

  1. Cook rice and dal,extract tamarind juice and keep aside. I cook rice and dal separately as I do not like rice get mashed too much(which will happen if we cook together rice and dal). So If you want you can cook both together too.
  2. Cooked rice
  3. Heat kadai and roast to golden brown,the ingredients under ‘To roast and grind table’ with a tsp of ghee/oil except coconut. Roast coconut separately.
  4. Roasted
  5. Cool down and grind to coarse powder and keep a side.
  6. Powdered
  7. Heat kadai and temper with the items given under ‘to temper’ table. Add curry leaves followed by onion,slit green chillies and fry till the onions start to turn golden.
  8. `fry shallots
  9. Add the tomatoes and fry till soft.
  10. Fry tomatoes
  11. Add the tamarind extract,bring to boil. Add the turmeric,sambar powder,asafoetida and the chopped veggies.
  12. Boil
  13. When the vegetables get cooked,add jaggery,the ground sambar powder and bring to boil.
  14. add veggies
  15. Add the sambar powder gradually while stirring,as there are chances of forming lumps.
  16. Add sambar powder
  17. Add this to the cooked rice.I used a pot shaped pressure cooker for making sambar rice. Add the mashed dal and mix well with out mashing the veggies. Add hot water if its too thick. I just mix under low flame for 2 minutes.
  18. Mix with rice,add dal
  19. Let the sambar rice be in a loose consistency. After cooled down, it tends to get thick,so let the consistency be according to that.Top with 2 tsp ghee and coriander leaves.
  20. Garnish

Notes:

  • I added 1/2 of a  drumstick,1 brinjal,1/2   carrot and 1/2 potato. You can add your choice of veggies.. I like potato the best…
  • While adding the veggies,add the veggie which takes longer time to cook first,follwed by the other veggies depending on their cooking time.
  • I usually cut the veggies in to small pieces to ensure easy cooking(except drumstick and brinjal in this case)
  • I have used both the sambar powder,you can use only one too,adjust the quantity accordingly.
Serve hot with simply potato chips(best combo) or any other veggie accompaniment.
