 The longer the sambar is cooked the better the taste and flavors. South Indian food, people and culture are inextricably linked to a ubiquitous dish as in idli and sambhar, sambhar and rice and so on. Many families from different regions of the Indian subcontinent have developed and maintained their own adaptations of a dal and vegetable stew, and similar preparations are evident in such dishes known in local languages as rasam, charu, saaru, pappuchaaru, mukkala pulusu etc.

 Adding of eggs in sambar is unique but gives an exceptional taste and is nutritious and healthy too. Eggs are one of the most sought after ingredient especially used during making an appetizing breakfast. It is easy to cook, can make any dish in jiffy with eggs and is the ultimate versatile form for cooking. Eggs are a power packed food with umpteen health benefits. They are a good source of high protein with many dietary benefits.

 They are very healthy and full of nutrition. Eggs are hugely versatile and can be added to any type of gravy dish, stew or mixed into making some of the best lip smacking and luscious desserts. Do try this striking variation of preparing a healthy and yummy sambar that can be eaten with hot rice or any type of Indian flat breads. Do make use of the key ingredients and consider integrating these protein rich staples in your everyday meal.

 Try being creative and prepare foods with a little variety in taste and flavour so that your family will want to eat more just to have something different and nutritious.
