SAMBHAR SATHAM I SAMBHAR RICE - ONE POT MEAL

Instant-onepot-meal copy

Hi friends, Sambhar is the very common in South Indian homes. Sambhar rice is a easy and healthy one pot meal, easy lunch box recipes too. I already posted Arisi paruppu satham which is Coimbatore special cuisine and we used to make it often.

Sambhar rice is a version of bise bela bath but here I won’t use any special powder. Sauted vegetables with tempering and cook with rice and dal together to give aromatic sambhar rice. The rice will be good mushy and suits well with pappads and potato fry… It is kids’ friendly recipe with loads of nutrition.

NOTE
  • I forgot to add tamarind extract while adding water, so I boiled the extract once and add to the cooked rice and cook it for 2 minutes, but am sure no compromise on taste.
  • If you love masala flavor, add 1 Tsp garam masala.
  • You can add your favorite veggies.

  8. Good vegetarian Indian food in Australia. They also serve meat except for pork, though they do not have certification. We had the masala dosa and it was filling. The rice and vegetarian dishes go well too. Location is central along Flinders street, which is very close to Federation Square and Flinders train station.
