Dear friends, Sambar is a typical south Indian food (curry) adding different vegetables (potatoes, onion, tomatoes, ladyfinger, eggplants, pumpkin, drumsticks, green chilly, curry leaves) and grams. Asafoetida, fenugreek, coriander powder and turmeric powder are also added in sambar. It is a nutritious food indeed. Recent research shows that Sambar has the curing capacity of colon cancer. I feel it is a good news for those who add sambar in their diet. I make sambar once in a week at home. What about the members not from India? Have you heard and tasted sambar any time?

I have heard of this dish and I may have even tried it... I'm not sure, because I've tried different kinds of Indian curries and sometimes I'm not always aware of the Indian names of them.

We add Asafoetida, fenugreek together then it must be Sambar. Another identity, different kind of vegetables with grams.

Yes, it is spicy but one can reduce the chilly powder. Now a days sambar powder is available in packet. so it won't be hot much.

I remember in my childhood, sambar is always making the available vegetables at home. I mean the vegetables grown at home. All mother's know well how to make it without spending money on it. The small onion, which is the tasty part in sambar, now turned much costly.

@vandana7 That onion is not available in North part of India. But it comes from south and available in south Indian stores. But it costs too much Rs. 160 per kg

Sambar is not spicy, doesn’t affect the intestine lining and stops the development of carcinogen.

Drumsticks is also called Moringa leaves or moringa pods. That's one hell of a diet recipe, I sure want to try one some day.

Drumstick tree in our language called 'Muringa' and I can see the similarities of the word with your language. "Moringa" and Muriga" there is slight difference of pronunciation..
