Recipe was good and everyone liked it. but I would suggest to add in more details, like quantity of veggies, how much water to be used for cooking as in step1. I understand that may be the basic things all cookery experts might know but as a beginner I was struck there.


Wow thanks for the recipe. I never make sambar because its so complicated and i never get it right. This was so easy and delicious. I added some green chilies and forgot to put the coriander but it was still very very good. Had it with idlis.
