Sambar Rice is like the ‘kichdi’ of SouthIndia. Perfect comfort food to have during elaborate weekend lunch or sometimes during dinner too. This recipe is based on Tamil Nadu style of cooking. It is prepared generally from Rice and Toor Dal.
In recent days due to various health reasons people are trying to switch from White Rice to millets for day to day cooking. This sambar sadham recipe is made using Barnyard Millet(Kuthiraivali in Tamil) & Masoor Dal. Also this is the best way to sneak in the vegetables and even fuzzy eaters will love this dish.The millet version tastes exacly like our regular sambar rice and you wouldn’t feel any difference in taste. Infact this version tastes better.
If you don’t have masoor dal in your pantry then try substituting it with regular Moong Dal or Toor Dal. The following measurement serves 4. Don’t get intimidated by the lengthy steps and ingredient list. I have divided the recipe into 4 different sections for easier understanding.
