Payatham-Paruppu Sambar/Moongdal Sambar - No Tamarind Sambar

This Sambar recipe, i noted down from a TV show of Mallika Badrinath. A Quick to make Sambar, Ideal for Idly/Dosa/Pongal or any Breakfast Menu.

Ingredients
3/4 cup Moong dal/Payatham Paruppu
1 Carrot, roughly chopped
1 Capsicum, roughly chopped
1 potato, Cubed
4-5 cauliflower florets
1 green chilli
1 large onion, Chopped
1 large tomato, Chopped
1 tbsp sambar powder
1 tsp Coriander seeds, roasted in ghee and powdered (Freshly powdered)
Salt to taste

Seasoning
1-2 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp methi seeds
hing, turmeric each a pinch
2 sprigs of curry leaves 

Method
Pressure Cook all the veggies and moong dal with a pinch of turmeric and green chilli for 3 whistles. In a pan, heat oil, splutter mustard seeds, add methi, hing and turmeric and curry leaves. Add onions and saute till translucent, then add tomatoes. Once the tomato is cooked, add the pressure cooked veggies-dal Mixture, add 1 cup water. The Sambar should not be very runny or too thick, So add water accordingly!!!! Add Sambar powder and Salt. Let the sambar boil and rawness of the sambar powder escape. Before, taking it off the stove, add freshly grounded coriander powder and mix well. Garnish with some fresh coriander leaves. 
The aroma of Coriander powder, does the magic do the sambar. A Tasty Combo for a Perfect South-Indian Breakfast!!!!!
