Mulangi Sambar /Radish Sambar


White Radish - 2-3 nos(medium ones)

Tamarind - 1big gooseberry size

Sambar powder - 3-4 tsps

Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp

Hing (asafoetida) 1/4 tsp

Curry leaves - few

Salt as required

Coriander leaves for garnishing.

Tuar dal (black gram dal) - 1/2 cup

Mustard seeds for seasoning - 1 tsp


Remove the skin of the radish and cut into small round slices.

Soak tamarind in water and make a thick extract.

Wash the radish slices and put into the tamarind liquid, and add salt, sambar powder,hing,turmeric powder and curry leaves and allow to boil and cook.

In the mean while take a small vessel and put the tuar dal with water and cook in the pressure cooker.

When the radish in the sambar has cooked ,slowly add the cooked tuar dal from the cooker and mix nicely.

The dal should be well cooked like mashed.

Now add some coriander leaves and mix in the sambar.

Now the sambar is ready, and now season in a little oil mustard seeds and pour into the sambar.

You can have the mulangi sambar with hot rice and some nice curry,raita, fried papad.
