When I posted vendaikkai sambar recipe, as I said its my mom’s version of making sambar. And this is my MIL’s version of making sambar. I love both versions. Though its similar, the method is different. My mom and maami both cook in organized but in their own ways. MIL has specific vessels for each and everything and she wont like if we change that routines. She uses the water that we drain by washing the rice (arisi mandi) and uses it for making sambar/ rasam. She extracts tamarind juice using that water and says its healthy as well as makes it more tastier. So here is my MIL’s version of making sambar. I posted this in my last week’s lunch menu.
Flavorful sambar, serve it with rice, we had it with small potato curry.
