How to Make Plain Sambar

  • Place the toor daal and the quartered beetroot in a pressure cooker; add sufficient water and pressure cook (minimum 3 whistles) till the daal is completely mashed.
  • Transfer the daal and the stock to a vessel.
  • Remove the outer peel of the beetroot (easier after pressure cooking) and cut the beetroot into thin slices/quadrants.
  • Put the beetroot along with the daal, and boil on medium to low flame for 10 to 15 minutes to allow the beetroot to cook.
  • Add the tamarind paste after dissolving in a little water to ensure no lumps are left behind.
  • Add the turmeric powder, chilli powder, green chillies slit vertically and the sambhar powder.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Heat oil in a pan; add mustard seeds and curry leaves.
  • After the mustard splutters, you can add it to the sambhar.
