Milagai Killi Sambar

Milagai Killi Potta Sambar is a traditional delicacy from Tamil Nadu cuisine.The speciality of this sambar which sets it apart from regular sambar is that it is spiced with only red chillis and green chilli which imparts a unique mild spicy flavour to this dish.Moreover we don’t add any veggies just shallots and tomatoes.Also we add tamarind extract only mildly.
Preparing this recipe is really simple and can be done quickly.Firstly cook and mash the toor dal and set aside,then add tempering and allow it to splutter next add the red chillies and green chillies followed by shallots garlic and tomatoes and cook until done. Now add little sambar powder (I have added it for flavour you can avoid it if you don’t want),turmeric powder, tamarind extract and sauté for few seconds then pour the cooked dal, add required salt and water and boil the sambar until desired consistency.Finally add jaggery a tsp of ghee and finely chopped coriander leaves mix well and switch off the gas.
