Arachuvitta Sambhar

We are great fans of Saravana Bhavan Sambhar. But ever since i tried Suganya's Sambhar, we both liked it a lot, and iam sure, now Saravana Bhavan Sambhar had taken a backseat. I even enjoy preparing this sambhar, as it just takes very less time. Peeling the shallot's/ Madras Onion's is one small job here. This is best with Idli, Dosa's and Vada's. you can check Suganya's recipe. I have modified the quantity of ingredient's and the preparation method according to my way. i assure you, this is a Fool Proof one.
