Sambhar is very staple food in south Indian food.. We used to make different types of sambhar for lunch and for tiffin.

Already I have posted few sambhar varieties in our blog, here is one more addition to the sambhar list, yes no onion no garlic sambhar.

In this type of sambhar we usually add the vegetables which are having more water content. For example radish, bottle gourd, ashgourd, banana stem etc.,

In this post I have used ashgourd to prepare the sambhar. This sambhar will tastes delicious at the same time will be more flavourful.

NOTES:

  •  Instead of ashgourd, chayote(chow chow) can also be used.
  • In this way of sambhar we mostly use the vegetables which is having more water content like chayote, ashgourd etc.
  • if you like you can even add sauteed onions too along with green chilis.
  • Adding fresh masala gives a wonderful flavour to the kuzhambu.
  • In this sambhar tamrind should not be more. so use little less than the amount you usually add.
  • if you like, tomatoes can also be added, in this case too reduce the anount of tamarind.
