a typical andhra south indian sambar will not contain tindora,beens,califlower,ttoo much of tamatoes,no beens at all............ the receipt which i am posting now is exactly andhra sambar. ,, and the sambar wil now have other pastes apart frm dal ............. dal is the most imporatant paste thats it....

Hi !

This si not the way of pire south indian sambhar
It seems not tasty as of like old taste (ammamma or bamma sambar)
And for sambar , we wont put tadka with urad dal and chana dal

But u done a very nice review
Thanks for sharing ur style of cooking with us

This recipe is not good...there are no proper instructions in terms of the quantity of dal or how much time it needs to be cooked in the cooker. It will be helpful if somebody checks the recipe completely and posts them to avoid spoiling someone's day who has followed the instructions
