Sambhar is a dish that is synonymous with South Indian cooking. As it is, sambhar is very nutritious as it combines toovar dal with an assortment of vegetables. While vegetables like red pumpkin, drumsticks and bottle gourd all contribute to the nutrient content of this recipe, the bumper iron top-up comes from the addition of methi leaves, which also adds to the flavour and aroma of the sambhar. Serve the Methi Leaves Sambhar piping hot with idli, dosa, rice or for a change, even with rotis.
