sambar dal recipehotel sambar recipe | sambar dal recipe | saravana bhavan sambar with step by step photo and video recipe. the south indian cuisine offers several sambar recipes which intersect with lunch/dinner and breakfast. in addition, there are subtle differences between the sambar prepared in a temple feast, in-house and in restaurants. this recipe post is dedicated to the hotel style, typically served in a thali like in saravana bhavan.

i have posted several sambar recipes including for rice and for south indian breakfast recipes. but this recipe is unique compared to my previous one, especially with the sambar powder or masala. basically with all the dry spices in the masala, i have also added dry desiccated coconut and roasted it with other spices. adding coconut gives a nice texture and flavour to the sambar and that’s how hotel sambar recipe is prepared in restaurants. moreover, they even add powdered rice grains to masala or directly to sambar which helps to give thickness to sambar. but i personally do not like it and have not added here. but if you feel your sambar is watery or thin, you are free to add it and experiment. as such it does not have any change in the taste of sambar though.

furthermore, some easy and important tips and suggestions while preparing the hotel sambar recipe. firstly, in terms of adding veggies to sambar dal, it is completely open-ended and you can experiment with your choice of veggies. apart from the veggies, i have in this recipe, you can add eggplant, gobi, radish, okra and shallots. secondly, i have prepared the sambar powder as required for this recipe. but you are more than welcome to prepare it in bulk for later use. make sure to store them in an airtight container in a dry place. lastly, the consistency of sambar may grow thick as time passes. and hence you can add water to maintain the consistency before reheating it.
