This is another type of Soppina Samabar  which does not use garlic. Any green can be used like Amaranth ,spinach,Malbar Spinach...etc.

For this,

You Need To Have:
2 Chopped Amaranth Leaves or any greens
1/2 cup Yellow lentil/ Toor Dal
3/4 cup fresh grated coconut
3-4 Red Chilies ( 3Byadagi+1 Guntur)
1 tps Cumin seeds
1 tsp Coriander seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds(1/2 for grinding+1/2 for tampering)
5-6 curry leaves
1/4 tsp Asafotida powder
2-3 tsp Tamarind Juice
salt to taste
1 medium size onion
2 tsp oil

Chop and wash Amaranth leaves.Cook them by adding little amount of water and keep it aside.
Cook leaves without closing lid to retain the green color.

Pressure cook yellow lentils for 3-4 whistles. (Add pinch of turmeric and 2-3 drops of oil while cooking)

Take a frying pan and fry red chilies by adding 2-3 drops of oil and keep them aside.Then fry cumin seeds, coriander seeds,mustard seeds , asafotida  and curry leaves together until mustard seeds start spluttering.

Grind this fried masala along with freshly grated coconut to smooth paste by adding required amount of water.As we are not using urad dal more coconut is used to thicken the sambar.

Mix cooked Amaranth leaves and yellow lentil.

Add tamarind juice, ground paste and required amount of water to get samabar consistency. Add salt and bring it to boil. Simmer for 5-6 mins.

Chop onions and prepare tadka with chopped onions and mustard seeds and add it to Samabar.
