Beans Sambar Recipe in Udupi Brahmin style.

Have you been to Udupi? The first thing you have to do as soon as you reach Udupi is to

  • Visit Krishna Mutt where you will have darshana of Lord Krishna.
  • Then eat Idli-Sambar-Chutni or Masala Dosa at Mitra Samaj or
  • Eat Ghee roast Dosa at Hotel Woodland. Hmmmmmmmm… yummm
  • And having Gud-Bud icecream at Hotel Diana should also be in you to do list.

Ok, I am a Shivalli Brahmin from Udupi. The rasam and sambar o this place has a typical traditional unique taste. Everything has jaggery. And also coconut is used here on daily basis. That is the speciality. :-P. Sambar is done with or without coconut, as per feasibility and choice, no compulsion.

Sambar Recipe:

  • Cook the chopped beans and soaked dal with some water in the pressure cooker and keep aside.
  • Now, to a bowl of warm water soak tamarind. After about 3-4 minutes, squeeze the tamarind and extract it. Remove all the hard non-dissolvable tamarind particles. So, now tamarind water is left.
  • To a vessel, add tamarind water and jaggery and heat.
  • When the tamarind water comes to boil state, add turmeric and all of the boiled beans and dal.
  • Add hing and lower the flame and allow it for about 5 minutes.
  • Then, add sambar powder and salt and boil some more.
  • Finally add the coriander leaves and curry leaves for the added aroma.
