Mullangi Sambar recipe – Learn How To Prepare Radish Sambar which is one of the basics in south Indian cooking. I got a request to put up the cooking basics video as well along with the usual ones. Only then, I noticed I never shoot any basics video like sambar, curries, rasam, and poriyal varieties. So I have taken up to post at least one basic video a month for my readers.
What has to be done to reduce the smell of radishes?
Radishes has to be thinly sliced and fried in oil for a few minutes before adding water. This way the smell can be reduced.
Which is the sambar powder used?
I use homemade powder while for a south Indian sambar, I suggest Annapoorna or Sakthi masala which gives good color and flavor.
What is the Cooking time of dal?
I intentionally did not give the cooking time for dal because it varies a lot based on the type of tur dal you use. Some soak it before cooking so the cooking time is faster. some pressure cook, some prefer to cook in pot. We need it mashed completely, so however it is cooked, make sure it is mashed well before adding to vegetables.
