I had very little last portion of idli dosa batter left and was thinking what to make for breakfast. Aj was asking for masala dosa and being Sunday I was worried about what to make for breakfast and lunch. It became easy when Aj demanded me for something, that at least I know what to do. Aj always wants sambar when he eats dosa. So I thought of making sambar that will go well with both breakfast as well as lunch and thought of keeping the same for lunch as well. So I made it not too mild not too tangy and spicy, in mid way between both so that I can use it up for both. I made drumstick and brinjal sambar. I know Vj would prefer chutney over sambar and only yesterday I ground this chutney except that I used coriander instead of mint. So decided to make coconut chutney to keep it simple. I had coconut that may dry if I keep it for more time than this, so used it up. For making it as a menu and special for a Sunday breakfast, I thought of making rava idli, my favorite and clicked for this post.
