Mango Sambar

This is another sambar, my grandma used to make. Here is the recipe.

Ingredients:-
  1. Ripe Mango - 1 cup (chopped)
  2. Tamarind Paste - 3/4 tsp
  3. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  4. Sambar powder - 1 tsp
  5. Jaggery - 1 1/2 tbsp
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Coconut - 1 tsp
  8. Coriander seeds - 3/4 tsp
  9. Red chillies -1
  10. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  11. Toor dhall - 1 cup (cooked)
For seasoning:-
  1. Oil - 2 tsp
  2. Mustard seeds- 1/4 tsp
  3. Fenugreek seeds - 1/4 tsp
  4. Curry leaves - few
First pressure cook toor dhall with a pinch of turmeric powder and keep it aside. Take a pan, pre heat oil, fry coriander seeds, coconut, red chillies and asafoetida powder to golden brown and grind it into a fine paste. Keep it aside.

This recipe is more like regular sambar. First put the chopped mangoes, tamarind paste, Jaggery water, turmeric powder, sambar powder and salt and let it cook for 10 mts. Add the coconut paste to it and let it cook for another 3 mts. Now add the cooked toor dhall to it and let it mix with mango ingredients. This is mango sambar. This can be eaten with rice.
