Keerai Sambar is a healthy recipe. Keerai is very rich in nutrients and a very good source of iron and potassium. This goes well with rice and tiffin varieties.
Keerai /spinach 1 bunch
Toor dal 1/2 cup
Sambar powder 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp Fenugreek seeds 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida 1/4 tsp
Mustard 1 tsp
Jeera 1/2 tsp
Oil 1 1/2 tspSalt As needed
1). Pressure cook toor dal with a pinch of turmeric powder for 2 whistles. Slightly mash the dal and keep it aside. Extract juice from tamarind and discard the pulp. Clean and roughly chop the keerai along with the stem.
# Use any varieties of Keerai for this sambar. But if you are using bitter keerai varieties, increase the quantity of tamarind.
# Keerai sambar requires less tamarind and more dal, as the Keerai sambar consistency should be little bit thicker the usual sambar.
# Shallots suits best for sambar.
