I know most of u know & make the hotel sambar at home.Even i too posted an idli sambar long time back , learnt from my MIL which tastes similar to the hotel ones . But i should say this is the exact recipe for hotel sambar. I got this recipe from Aval vikatan’s supplementary. Yesterday i tried this for my guests. My guests liked it so much, i was showered with compliments and they were asking for the recipe. Thanks to Mrs. Revathy shanmugam for this yummy hotel kind of recipe. It tastes mildly tangy , more of dal , less spicy and u can drink this sambar . U can use this sambar recipe for making sambar vada .My friend Jayarani gave me a tip recently. She told me to add pumpkin instead of jaggery and she also suggested me to use drumstick. Yes , as she told adding pumpkin gave a mild sweetness and drumstick gave a nice flavour..I have updated the recipe adding them. Do try this ,I am sure u’ll get the exact taste as in most of the restaurants.It goes well with idli , dosa , Venpongal and vada.Check out this recipe for another version of hotel sambar if interested..
To roast and grind
Jaggery – 1 tsp ( Add if u don’t use pumpkin)
Ghee – 1 tbsp
