Sambhar Sadam

When I asked my facebook friends about there favourite one pot meal recipes, there were so many answers…..of which one caught my attention and that was Sambar Sadam…..mentioned by Dershana. This recipe was there in my mind since so long….but never tried making it. I have searched for the recipe too…but never tried my hands on it….but when Dershana mentioned it…I asked her for the recipe….she took out time and made it for me and posted it on her blog. From then to now, I have made this recipe many a times and I love it a lot. Thank you Dershana for sharing it….

Rice and Toor Dal in earthen pots

One thing I love the most of about this recipe is the medley of flavours. An aromatic tadka and flavoursome spices make this recipe very unique. It’s simple to make and can be made in less time too. It can also be a lunch box recipe. You may be wondering by seeing the pictures in the recipe…as and when Dershana has posted the recipe in her blog, I was so tempted by it and made it on the same day…took 1-2 snaps to show her.

Sambhar Sadam

The aroma coming from the recipe made me dam hungry and so I had it in no time. The later ones are taken when I made it for another time and at that time, my lil MM was around me when I was clicking and to add more fun sun started playing hide and seek. So the result is in front of your eyes. But trust me Sambhar Sadam was super yummy…..finger licking good…
