Kadamba Sambar Sadam | Sambar Rice

Sambar Sadam, a popular dish in most of the South Indian Restaurants. Especially when we order for mini meals or as an individual dish, this sambar rice stands out because they are not only yummy, but also very rich dish with mixed veggies and along with protein rich lentils (thoor dal). Kadamba means mixed, we are going to use mixed veggies and also rice and lentils thats why we call this as Kadamba Sambar Rice. We don't need a separate curry for this awesome Sambar rice, just with Appalam / papad this Sambar rice would be a perfect one pot meal for us!
