Udupi Style Sambar Recipe | Masala Huli With Mixed Vegetables

Udupi Style Sambar Recipe | Masala Huli With Mixed Vegetables

Friday, 15 September 2017 11:00

Sambar/Sambhar is a lentil based vegetable stew or chowder with a tamarind broth. It is popular in South Indian cuisine. The Udupi Style Sambar Recipe | Masala Huli With Mixed Vegetables goes well with idlis, dosas and even rice. It is a common dish served in the Udupi style restaurants There are three types of udupi sambar. Here I am presenting the 'Masala Huli' which has vegetables, dal and coconut. The other two types; 'Bol huli' and 'Podi huli' are more or less the same but don't have coconut and podi has sambar powder in it. Udupi food uses a lot of jaggery and this Sambar too is a bit on the sweeter side. You can add less jaggery if you desire. Udupi Sambar is basically a no onion no garlic recipe. But here I have made use of onions and tomato as observed in sambar which I tasted in certain restaurants and combined it with a recipe of udupi sambar given to me by a friend. Hence, you can prepare this recipe without onion and garlic too, just by omitting them in ingredients and instructions. The use of freshly roasted and ground masala and jaggery makes this sambar extremely flavourful. Also here I have cooked the vegetables separately with onions instead of cooking with dal, which again increases its flavour. One of mine and my family's favourites! Serve Udupi Style Sambar Recipe | Masala Huli With Mixed Vegetables along with Homemade Soft Idli Recipe and Red Chilli Coconut Chutney Recipe (South Indian Chutney) for breakfast.
