This sambar is made without using any powder such as sambar powder or chilly powder. This
can be easily made within minutes and I love the taste so much. This we used prepare often during winter that too for dinner. Because the taste will be delicious only when you have it hot(both the rice and sambar should be HOTTER). In this cold weather, I prepared this and whole of my family loved having it.
Toor Dhal - 1 cup
Pearl Onion - 20
Tomato - 2
Green Chillies - 10
Red Chillies - 5

Pressure cook the dhal and mince the onion and chillies.
In the kadai, add 1 tsp oil and add the items to season.
Add the onion and chillies and saute well. Now add the tomatoes and saute well. Dont let the tomatoes get smashed. It will be good only when they are sepearate.
Add the cooked dhal with 1 cup of water, turmeric powder and salt. Once it starts boiling add the tamarind juice and cook it for 5 more mins.
This dish will be watery only, so dont bother about the consistency. Serve hot with hot rice, Potato Fry and Rice Friyums.
