Onion Sambhar

Onion Sambhar is a very common weekend dish.It is really so good with potato roast.My friend asked for the recipe and here you go.

Small Onion-----------------2 cups
Tamrind paste---------------1 spoon
Toor Dhal-------------------3/4 cup
Mustard seeds---------------1 spoon
Sambar Powder---------------3 spoons
Salt------------------------1 spoon

You can get any sambhar powder for this.Also you can make the sambhar powder.I will post the method soon.

Heat little oil and fry mustard seeds,onion and tomatoes.
Fry the onions till it turn light brown.
Then add the tamrind water and add little turmeric powder and salt
After some 2 min add the sambar powder and let it boil for 15 to 20 min.
After the aroma arises add the cooked and mashed toordal and allow it to boil for 5 min.
Sambhar is ready.
Likewise you can make other sambhars with different vegetable like carrot,lady's finger .
