Fried sambar | Manathakalli Vathal Sambar

A small variation in the preparation of a Sambar can make much difference in the taste / flavor. In Manathakalli Vathal Sambar (Fried Sambar) we fry the Sambar powder in the oil first instead of adding the sambar powder in the last as we do in the conventional Sambar. Fried Sambar powder gives a different taste to the Sambar.  I hope you and your family will like this sambar.
