I've posted varieties of idli sambar learning from my MOM & MIL.This one is my MIL's special sambar. Sendhil loves this a lot . So I make it at least once in a week.It tastes similar to hotel sambar. I make this sambar for Idli, dosa and pongal specially for my guests.

** Also try adding a tsp of grated coconut for additional flavor while roasting.
** Add veggies like brinjal, Drumstick and carrot to make it more healthy.
In this sambar, we should add very less tamarind extract.So it will taste mild and less spicy. If u want it more spicy & tangy , add pinched red chillies while tempering and squeeze some drops of lime juice before serving.
Enjoy this yummy, delicious Sambar with hot idli !
