Sambhar Tales......

Smelling Sambhar from witchyangel's blog....

I and my roommates (a Bangalore guy/a Andhra guy) take turns to cook everything except sambhar.
The Reason:
My Kannada roomie adds jaggery everytime he cooks sambhar which we(the other two) couldnot stand !!
My Andhra roomie adds more chili powder (very hot) in his preparation which we,(the other two) couldnot stand.
My preparation is the "BEST Tamil Nadu istyle" and they always find fault about it...

We would never compromise on the "authentic taste " of the sambhar. Is that right??

Hmm !!
I would always never say what I will be cooking before and after I make it.
I leave it to the person eating it to find it out himself so that he enjoys it the most...

hope u know what I mean....Sambhar or not let him think it is something else and enjoy it in his own AUTHENTIC taste.

En namba pera keduthukanum.

Never realize there were Andhra & Kanada sambar. I'll probably stick to Tamil Nadu too.

too many 'sambar's in the blogs nowadays.. just now, I finished tasting a cup in chakra's blog.. now, in your post.. still, tastes good

Chakra Sampath said...

you just have to ask Kaps (Sambhar Mafia) for the right solution.. :)

Tamil Nadu Sambar is the Best.
the AP sambar also good.

my roomies happen to be mallu/telugu and the final version of the sambhar we make wud be a trifecta ;-) but adhu senju mudikkaradhukulla dhaan koothu ;-)) all psbl curry powders wud have been mixed in.. so voila u get a sambar look alike :-))

WA said...

Hmmm I am surprised that Sambhar mafia hasn't smelt this title from Singapore yet! Sweet saambaaraa?? Andhra sambhar doesn't sound too bad though

Atleast Andhhra one u can make up with adding Ghee. But the one with the Mix up Of Jaggery. Sorry I cant stand. Nambha ooru Sambhare Sambharrhan.

Shrinivas said...

what if you all join together and cook? Too many cook spoil the food? The Chill will reduce the jaggery efforts and TNstyle will last.

Kaps said...

sorry for being late......
Bangalore Sambhar is not preferred by Tams. Having lived there I can tell that it tastes sweeter and it is also orange in colour....something similar to Fanta.

BTW even I don't know to cook.
