Sambar sadam is a very easy one pot meal. I make bisibelabath for weekend lunch but this sambar is more of restaurant style sambar sadam. I learnt this recipe from my friend’s mom very long back. She made this sambar sadam and invited us for lunch. It tasted awesome and it tasted more like the restaurant style sambar sadam.  Many times when i do i never had time to click the pictures and twice in a hurry the picture came out bad. Two weeks back, when Suresh was not in town, i made this for me and kids and clicked the pictures too.  So sharing the recipe of how to make sambar sadam today.
