  1. sambar looks delicious...we south indians make many variations of sambar.For each vegetable there is one sambar...like we put only brinjal it becomes brinjal sambar...sometimes lady finger sambar,radish sambar is my favorite ...in all sambars onion and tomato is kept constant...i love your version...looks very colorful n inviting
