arachuvitta sambar recipearachuvitta sambar recipe | araithu vitta sambar | freshly grounded sambar recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. sambar recipes are very common across south india and are one of the essential recipes for a meal. it is generally made with lentil and sambar mix spice combination with desired vegetable combination, but can also be made with other choices. one other variation is the arachuvitta sambar recipe or also known as freshly grounded sambar recipe known for its fresh sambar masala flavour.

well, this recipe comes from authentic tamil brahmin cuisine with the spices selected and the way it is prepared is unique to it. having said that, it is very similar to the coconut sambar prepared in my hometown udupi. the colour and the spice used are very similar which yields a very similar texture, but still has a lot of differences. firstly the vegetables used are the combination of multiple vegetables ranging from radish, eggplant, cucumber, drumsticks, carrots, onions and even potatoes. whereas from my native it is generally one vegetable and radish, onions and garlic are prohibited from using due to their strong pungent smell. secondly, coconut oil is heavily used in frying the spices and also for tempering. whereas sesame oil is used in this recipe which gives a unique flavour to this recipe.

furthermore, i would also like to add some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to arachuvitta sambar recipe. firstly, you can use a wide range of vegetables for this recipe and the combination makes it unique. do not overcrowd with vegetables and try to balance them. adding onions with radish and eggplant makes it a balanced one. secondly, try to use fresh coconut and avoid using frozen or desiccated coconut for this recipe. i did not have access to the fresh ones hence i used the desiccated one. lastly, once the sambar is rested it may turn thick consistency. this is due to the fact, we are adding lentil with the ground masala. hence you may need to bring it back to the original consistency by adding water and boiling it.
