PASSI PARUPPU THANNI SAMBHAR I MOONG DAL SAMBHAR - NO VEGGIES

Hi friends, sambhar is the main recipe in our South Indian home, festivals and celebrations too.  My mom used to make the passi paruppu (Moong Dal) sambhar for our tiffin, it really goes well with idli and dosas. She used to make the sambhar little watery, coz it will be so good when we have with idlies. 



The idlies will absorb the sambhar, it will be very juicy and spicy. No need tamarind for the sambhar, it will be very delicious and I posted Toor Dal sambhar already. Here, I don't add any veggies here, so very easy and simple recipes, you can make the quick sambhar in a jiffy.

  • Don’t add salt with the dal, because the dal did not cook well if the salt is added.

  • Add 2 Tsp of ghee when you switch off the flame, it gives rich flavour to the sambhar.
