mullangi sambar recipemullangi sambar recipe | radish sambar | moolangi sambar or mooli sambar with step by step photo and video recipe. sambar recipes are very common south indian staple dish prepared with either single vegetable or combination of vegetables. it is generally served as a side dish to dosa / idli or as a main course with hot steamed rice. mullangi sambar is one such recipe prepared with a combination of dal and coconut masala.

while the south indian cuisine is popular for its sambar recipes, there are myriad variations it has to offer. the major variations are the use of masala especially with and without coconut. in this mullangi sambar recipe i have used freshly grounded coconut masala with the combination of pressure cooked toor dal. particularly this combination gives the consistency and texture for the radish sambar. typically the coconut masala is a popular choice from the southern coastal cuisine. having said that the other popular variation is to prepare it without coconut and just with pressure cooked toor dal and top it with sambar powder. perhaps this is an easy variation compared to former but i personally love coconut based sambar.

some tips, recommendation and serving ideas while preparing mullangi sambar recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have prepared fresh sambar masala by adding dry spices and other ingredients. but if you are running short of time, you can skip those dry spices and replace it with 2 tsp of sambar powder. you can use store bought sambar powder too for the same. secondly, if you do not like coconut masala, then you can check my mix veg sambar recipe to prepare it with just toor dal. in mix veg i have used a range of vegetables, and for this sambar use only radish. lastly, i have added hint of jaggery for this recipe for the sweetness taste, but can be skipped if it does not match your taste preference.
