Previously, we had shared Girija Paati’s mixed vegetable sambar, which is the most common version made in most Tamil households. Arachuvitta Sambar is a fancier version that is thicker with coconut and a lot more spices. It goes especially well with classic South Indian tiffin items such as idlies, dosas and vadas.
Sambar is one of the most well-known of South Indian dishes.
Every South Indian state, actually every home in these states has its version of the ubiquitous dish. Girija Paati makes a number of Sambar versions herself, though the mixed vegetable version is the simplest and most popular.
