Donne Menasinakayi Samabar/Capsicum Samabar

Smell from cooked capsicum is the key thing in this sambar. This is my one favourite sambar.

You Need To Have:
2 medium size capsicum
1/2 cup toor dal
1 tomato
1 onion
2-3 tsp sambar powder
2 tsp tamarind juice
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
2-3 curry leaves
2 tsp grated coconut
2 tsp chopped coriander leaves
salt to taste

Pressure cook toor dal and chopped tomato for 3-4 whistles and keep it aside(add 1tbs oil and pinch of turmeric to dal )Using fresh cooked lentil increases taste.

Cut capsicum and onion into big chunks and keep it aside.

Heat 1 tsp oil in a samabr pot and add mustard seeds to it. once it starts spluttering and onion and fry till they become translucent.  Add chopped capsicum and curry leaves. cook capsicum without adding water until they are done.

Add cooked lentil, tamarind juice ,sambar powder and required amount of water. bring it to boil. Add grated coconut , chopped coriander leaves and salt. simmer for 5 mins.Mix well and serve with plain rice.
