What type of Sambar is this?? giving 5 stars!! In sambar , only roasted coconut is added along with other ingredients , like HING, CORIANDER & CHILLI POWDER & RED CHILLIES & CURRY LEAVES .roasted along with all these ingredients. I usually add Some small onions too. Thus makes sambar with some tamarind pulp. That s SAMBAR. some add coriander leaves too.If I post this they asked to rate this dish. So rated 1 STAR.

This sounds deadly. Will the taste change if I omit hing?
