HI, We prepared this so called udipi sambar with all the ingredients listed there. After 3 hours of hard work, I would rate this as my all time bad dish. I wonder how people gave 5 stars for this dish. I am pretty much sure that those people appreciated this sambar might have never tasted sambar before. I trusted this website before, not anymore...

I have a note to jayasree regarding this receipe. See,cumin seeds are used in common in several states including Kerala.As I`m abroad I discussed with many of my friends from different parts of India and came to know that cumin is more commom and that too its udipi sambar.

It was an excellent dish. Enjoyed making it and serving it. Instead of coriander seeds one can add corinader powder.

This is a great recipe, one which my Andhra husband and relatives loved. He claimed that it tasted like a Kannada dish with the coconut added in. I didn`t put in so many onions (possibly a typographical error at 25!)
