Sambar Sadam / Sambar Rice

Sambar sadam is another one pot meal which can be made so quick. I usually make this when I don't have much time to spare for cooking in kitchen. This dish saves me the time of making sambar and rice separately..lazy me rt ? :) You can make this in a pressure cooker in no time. It's a healthy one pot meal with the combo of  rice, dal and veggies. This is a perfect lunch menu and this is my version. I served it with a simple Beetroot raita. This can be served with any vegetable stir fry or poriyal, a raita or even with plain yoghurt. Try out this delicious rice !! 



What you need?

1 cup Rice
1/2 cup Toor dal
1 Onion small, chopped
1 cup chopped Vegetables of your choice
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1.5 tbsp Sambar powder
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/4 cup Tamarind water
2 dried Red Chilly
4-5 Curry Leaves
2 tsp Oil
few Coriander leaves
4 cups Water
Salt

How to prepare?

Soak the dal in water for half an hour ( I usually do this step)

Heat oil in a pressure cooker.  Splutter mustard seeds. Saute curry leaves, dried red chilly and onions until the onions turn pink.  Now add turmeric powder, sambar powder and asafoetida on a low flame, saute until raw smell goes. Add tamarind water to this and mix well. 

On a medium flame, add chopped vegetables and saute for a couple of minutes. Add dal, saute for a minute and then the rice and combine everything well. Pour in the water. Add salt and finally the coriander leaves. Mix everything well. 

Pressure cook for 3 whistles. Allow the pressure to release completely. Serve hot with any vegetable stir fry/poriyal,   raita or plain yoghurt.

I served it with a Beetroot raita. Check out the recipe here.



Notes:
* I use 1:3 ratio for rice and water. Use your rice to water ratio and add 1 extra cup of water. 
* Add vegetables of your choice.
* Adjust the quantity of sambar powder, tamarind water depending on how you make sambar.
