How to make Kalyana Sambar

  1. Cook the toor dal by adding enough water and turmeric powder and mash it well.
  2. Soak the tamarind and extract the juice from it. Roast the ingredients except coconut given under 'to roast&grind'. Grind this along with coconut and a little water to a smooth paste.
  3. In a vessel, add a little oil, saute carrot, beans & brinjal. Cook it for some time.
  4. Once it is cooked, then add ash gourd and tamarind water.
  5. The raw smell of tamarind goes away, add the ground paste and salt.
  6. Once it boils well, add the mashed toor dal + required water. Mix it well.
  7. Finally temper with the items given under 'to temper' and add it to sambar.
My Tip: Don't skip the ghee while temper, it gives a nice taste. The sambar will be thick once it is cooled, so add the water accordingly. Mainly they used only ashgourd or mixed veg. I used White pumpkin or ash gourd, carrot, beans and brinjal.
