A healthy southindian breakfast…..this is such easy to prepare that if u prepare it once in the morning you can even have this for lunch, evening or night anytime of the day….
When I prepare idli sambar for my family, my son likes to have this through out the day…
This is a unbeatable combo, even some like to have coconut chutney along with this…but I like to have idli soaked in sambar….
Here I have used shallots (sambar onions), drumsticks and potato with tuvar dal….
Here is the recipe of sambar….
•8 -10 shallots (sambar onions) or you can use1medium onion
•1 tomato chopped
• small tamrind seed size jaggery
•1tsp tamrind paste
•2tblsp sambar powder
