Many and more Veg. Sambhar

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I Love Vegetables and more vegetables, in any form. But my favorite is Veg. sambhar with hot rice and ghee.
And as I need to give nutritious food to my kids, I prefer to mix more than one food and give them in one time.
I am giving here two recipes for sambhar, only difference in both is the masala. First sambhar is without any masala, and the second one is with Godha masala. You can use any vegetables for both the sambhar.
I always prefer to mix maximum vegetables.
Recipe for  Plain Veg Sambhar

Vegetables : Any vegetables(you can see in the photo) or as per your taste.(wash, clean and cut the vegetables and keep aside)
Toor dal or moong dal -1/2 cup (boiled)
Tomato - 2 big chopped
Oil - 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Methi seeds - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Tamarind paste - 1 tbsp
Chilly powder - 1 to 2 tbsp
Jaggery - 1 tbsp
Dhania (coriander) powder - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Haldi - 1 tsp
Water for sambhar

Veg Sambhar without masala
Heat oil in thick bottomed vessel. Add Methi seeds, when they change the color, add mustard seeds. When splutter, add jeera, curry leaves. Now go on adding, the harder vegetables(which takes more time to cook) and cook for sometime. Then add the softer vegetables. Add chopped tomatoes. After a minute, go on adding all the dry powders, jaggery  and tamarind paste. When vegetables are 3/4th cooked, add boiled dal. Mix properly and add water as per your requirement and taste. Boil it for 5 minutes. Adjust the seasoning.
Veg. Sambhar is ready to serve with hot rice and ghee.
Recipe for Veg Sambhar with Godha masala
You can choose any available vegetables.
The only difference in this recipe is add Godha masala 2 tbsp instead of Coriander powder and reduce the qty of red chilly powder to 1 tbsp.


Godha masala is mainly used in Maharashtra. It is having strong smell as more spices are used to make this powder. But when you add in any gravy or sabji or sambhar, the taste is really very tasty and the aroma will attract any one to the kitchen to check what's cooking???
