Quick Vegetable Sambhar

I can call this sambhar as bachelor's sambhar, yep this dish is really very quick to make and definitely an easy breezy dish, gets ready in very less time. Just you need a pressure cooker, this is a pressure cooker sambhar. I do this sambhar quite often if i have sudden guests at home or else whenever i feel like lazy.This sambhar dont even need onions or garlic, so you can have this gravy for a fasting day. Coming to this sambhar, i used mixed dals and variety of veggies, just put everything together which goes for pressure cooking which i spiced up with sambhar powder, tempered spices and lemon juice.

Whenever i go to farmer's market, back home i usually prepare my frozen veggies either by slicing or chopping them, as they are really handy for making quick foods,also they wont lose their vitamins once they get freezed. If you have frozen veggies,this sambhar is super easy to make. For my second day of blogging marathon, am posting this quick sambhar as i chosed pressure cooked recipes as this week's theme. Check out the marathoners running this 22nd edition of blogging marathon here.Sending to my event Healthy Diet-Fast & Quick Healthy Dish guest hosted by Kalpana.
