BM #118 Week 4 Day 1 - 

This week I shall highlight some of my personal favorites and this Raw Mango Sambar is a new find.

The raw mango imparts a subtle tanginess and the rest of the flavors go very well.

Ingredients - 

Raw Mango peeled and cubed 1 cup
Drumstick chopped to 2 inch pieces 1 cup
Tomato chopped 1/2 cup
Toor Dal 3/4 cup
Tamarind 1 small lime sized portion
Salt, Turmeric and Jaggery as needed
Coriander powder 1.5 Tbsp
Red Chili Powder 1 tsp (or as needed)
Seasoning (Sesame Oil 2 tsp , Fenugreek seeds 1/4 tsp, Mustard seeds 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1/2 tsp, Curry leaves few, Asafotida 1/8 tsp, Dry Red Chili 1)

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and pressure cook Toor dal for about 15 minutes, mash and set aside.

In a heated pan, add the cubed raw mango and chopped drumsticks along with 2 cups of water, cover and allow them to be cooked through.

Also add the tomatoes and let them become mushy.

Meanwhile extract tamarind water and set aside. Depending on the sourness of the raw mango, the amount of tamarind water needs to be adjusted.

After the raw mango and drumsticks are cooked through, add mashed Toor Dal, tamarind water and stir well.

Sprinkle salt, turmeric, coriander powder, red chili powder and jaggery, mix well and allow the flavors to blend in.

Let the sambar come to a rolling boil and after the froth comes up, reduce the heat.

Prepare the seasoning in a separate pan by heating sesame oil and adding all the ingredients for seasoning.

Pour the prepared seasoning into the boiling sambar, cover and remove from heat.

Serve with steaming rice as part of a meal.


Preparation Time 40 minutes
