SAMBAR WITHOUT DAL

I have already posted the recipe of Tiffin sambar , but  few weeks ago when i went for an outing with my friends the topic of instant sambar came. Suddenly i remembered that i have tried an instant sambar long back from Rohini’s space. But since i forgot that recipe i searched in her blog again and made the instant tiffin sambar again and enjoyed with idlis . After a break rohini has started blogging again.
