VENGAYA SAMBAR RECIPE| ARACHUVITTA VENGAYA SAMBAR RECIPE

SAMBAR WITH FRESH GROUND MASALA

     When we were kids vengaya sambar is the one which my mom makes whenever we have guests at home and especially any newly married couple visit our home, she makes arachuvitta vengaya sambar and potato curry along with papad and tomato rasam. So we always have love towards this sambar even now and my mom makes this so well and over to the recipe of vengaya sambar – My mom’s version.
