    My Notes:

  • I didn’t use coconut in this sambar.If you want to add coconut you can add at the final stage.
  • In this recipe i used the home made sambar powder if you don’t have sambar powder you can use 1 tsp chilly powder and 2 tsp coriander powder.
  • You can also add the dry roasted chilly,coriander seeds,toor dal and coconut and add the powder in the sambar,we call it as arachivitta sambar.
