Good evening folks!! Hope you are enjoying the weekend. So today I am here with another dish. For a change it’s a south Indian curry. It’s the famous Sambar.

Sambar is most common in South India and predominantly in Kerala and Tamilnadu. This is a spicy gravy type curry which is eaten with Rice, Dosa or Idli. The main ingredients in sambar are dal, ladies finger, drumstick, potato, tomato, shallots and onion. The gravy is made with a paste of fried and grinded coconut in Kerala sambar. The spices used include Hinguva, Coriander powder etc…

This is served as part of meals in Kerala and Tamilnadu as the primary curry.  Other things with which we eat sambar are Dosa and Idli.

This is very common and must for any marriages or festival meals in Kerala. You should not miss this item if you get a chance to visit the southern part of the country next time.

Cost is not worth mentioning as it is served along with other main items.

Where to get:

  • For Kerala meals Sambar is must so any restaurant in Kerala
