Tomato Sambar | தக்காளி சாம்பார் | Thakkali Sambar

Tomato Sambar is a great accompaniment that goes well with tiffin varieties. This sambar is no-onion, no-garlic version. This is similar to Tiffin Sambar, but, this sambar can be prepared in jiffy with handy ingredients. Check out other Sambar Recipes which I have already posted :- Traditional Sambar, Beetroot Sambar, Radish Sambar, Keerai Sambar, Mango Sambar, Tiffin Sambar.   

Ingredients :-
 Tomato (roughly chopped)    4 - 5  
 Toor dal    ½ cup
 Turmeric powder   ¼ tsp
 Chilli powder    1 tsp  
 Castor Oil    ¼ tsp
 Cumin  ¼ tsp 
 Curry leaves    few
 Red Chillies    4 
 Salt to taste

Method :-
1). In a pressure cooker, add toor dal, roughly chopped tomato, turmeric powder, chilli powder, 1/4 tsp castor oil, salt, 2 cups of water and close the lid. Pressure cook till dal become soft.
2). Leave it for 2-3 whistles and switch off. Once the pressure releases, mash the cooked dal and tomato together using laddle/masher.
3). Heat oil in a pan to do the seasoning. Add cumin, curry leaves and red chillies and saute till aroma arises. Pour this seasoning on top of the sambar and mix together.  
Done ! Simple and delicious sambar is ready. I served this delectable sambar with Idli's.
