Sambar Sadham



Sambar Sadham is a quick and delicious one pot meal adapted from Edible Garden. Thanks for the recipe Nags. I modified the recipe to suit my taste. Piping hot sambar sadham with ghee drizzled all over is very satisfying and comforting any time of the day!



Serves 3

Ingredients:
Oil-1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds-1 tsp
Fenugreek Seeds-1/2 tsp
Curry leaves-a few
Ginger grated-1 tsp
Salt
Hing-1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Tamarind-small lime size ball
Thur dal-1/3 cup
Rice-2/3 cup
Sambar Powder-2 tbsp
Coconut grated-2 tbsp
Ghee-2 tbsp
Coriander leaves- to garnish
Veggies I used:
Onion Sliced-1/2 cup
Carrot-1
Brinjal-2
Peas-a handful
Capsicum-1 small
Tomato-1

Of course, you can use any veggies of your choice.

Method:
Soak tamarind in 1.5 cups of warm water.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker.
Add mustard seeds, curry leaves and fenugreek seeds.
When mustard seeds crackle, add ginger and all the veggies one by one.
Sprinkle salt  and hing.
Fry for 5 minutes.
Extract 2 cups of tamarind water and add it to the veggies.
Add sambar powder, turmeric powder, coconut and salt.
Rinse rice and dal and add.
Add 2.5 cups of water.
Close the lid and pressure cook for 6-7 whistles(till rice and dal become mushy).
When pressure is released, open the lid and garnish with coriander leaves.
Drizzle ghee just before serving.
Serve with raitha and chips.
Note: I have used 2 cups of tamarind water and 2.5 cups of water for 1 cup of rice and dal mixture.
You may soak thur dal in warm water for 30 minutes before pressure cooking just to make sure it is fully cooked.
