Carrot & Greengram Sambar

Whenever i dont have toor dal or yellow moongdal,i dont bother to use the whole greengrams for making sambar,  this carrot and greengram sambar is one among those sambar..This sambar tastes mildly sweet,spiceless and nutritious to feed everyone at home easily, a wonderful sambar which suits prefectly to any ages..I skipped the sambar powder in this sambar and used simply slit opened green chillies and lemon juice to spice up this quick and easy sambar..Serve it with spicy potato roast,papads or with hard boiled eggs, am damn sure that your lunch or dinner will tastes absolutely divine, you can very well serve this sambar even along with hot steaming idlis or crispy dosas.



3/4cup Green gram
3nos Carrots (chopped)
1no Onion (chopped lengthwise)
2nos Tomatoes (chopped )
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
Few curry leaves
6nos Garlic cloves(crushed)
1tsp Lemon Juice

For Tempering:
1/4 tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Urad dal
3 nos Red chillies
1/4tsp Cumin seeds
1/4 tsp Asafoetida powder

Wash greengram well and pressure cook upto three whistles..heat enough oil in a kadai, add the mustard seeds, urad dal, red chillies,curry leaves, cumin seeds,asafoetida powder and let them splutters..

Now add the finely chopped lengthwise onion pieces n fry them well until they turns transculent, add the tomato pieces, fry them until they turns mushy.. Now add the green chillies and crushed garlic cloves, fry them for a while,add immediately the chopped carrots,saute for few minutes...now add the cooked greengram with salt and enough water, bring them to boil, put the flame in simmer and let them cook until the veggies gets well cooked..put off the stove finally add lemon juice to the sambar..
