Mullangi Sambar | Mooli Sambar

This version is little different from the normal one. We add both sambar and rasam powders for flavor. It gives you a unique taste.

1 Medium onion chopped
2 Medium Tomatoes diced
1 cup sliced Mooli (Mullangi)
1 Tbs Oil 
2 Tbs Tamarind  
1 Tbs Jaggrey
For Sambar paste
1 Tbs Sambar powder
1 Tbs Rasam Powder
1 Tbs Poppy seeds
1 Tbs Coconut powder
Crushed Garlic
Red chili's 
1 Tbs oil

Heat a vessel with oil add onions and saute them till they are transparent.Now take tomatoes & Mooli and add with onions.
Add salt to vessel and close it with a lid. 

Grind Sambar powder,Rasam Powder,Poppy seeds & Coconut powder to a smooth paste. 
Once the veggies are done add the ground paste,Tamarind, Salt , Jaggery & 21/2 cups of water. 
Bring it to boil. Meanwhile prepare the seasoning.

Take a small pan heat it with oil then add mustard, jeera, Redchili, garlic. Once mustard starts jumping add it to sambar. It's ready to serve.

Out Come: The sambar was all yum with mooli flavor. It tasted too good. Try it :)
