Sambar ( Indian Dhal Curry)

The humble sambar ( Spinach/Bayam Sambar ). The must for most Indians. Like the main calling for a vegetarian meal ( Sodhi/Coconut Milk Stew & Instant Rasam ) most of the time? For me personally, sambar has taken a toll on me. Why? Oh-god. The years of literally eating sambar cooked by mummy dearest until I really can't stand sambar anymore. Of course, without a doubt, this Indian man I am married to? Sambar is still his best friend and me faithfully making  ( Dalca/Dhal Mutton Curry ). Sambar for rice, sambar for tosai, sambar for idli, sambar for roti canai and sambar and sambar. I don't think there will be the end to sambar in my house or who knows, the future may hold a different food picture. For the time being however, this is sambar. Lentil/dal cooked alongside spices, radish, tomato, seasoned by tamarind juice and scented with coriander leaves and curry leaves.
