About Hotel Saravana Bhavan Style Idli sambar

Idli Sambar is a traditional breakfast in South Indian households. It is also served as an evening snack at a lot of places. Idli is basically a savory, made by steaming a batter consisting of fermented black lentils (de-husked) and rice. Sambar is a lentil-based vegetable stew or chowder based on a broth made with tamarind. A lot of spices are added to the sambar to make it more flavorsome. Sambar is specifically served with Idli, as it gives a slight spice to the idli making it more appetizing. Sarvana Bhawan Style Idli Sambar is an absolutely outstanding recipe with an outburst of spices in the sambar and the exclusive softness of the idlis. Sarvana Bhawan have been offering an authentic spread of South Indian dishes since ages. One of the specialty is its Idli Sambar, which is very difficult to get hands on with. But this recipe is a total catch, as it brings you all the secret ingredients which make their Idli and Sambar so exotic!

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