For typical Havyaka kind of sambar, coconut and roasted spices (or curry powder) will be ground into a fine paste and will be added to the cooked dal and veggies. You can use different varieties of vegetables for preparing this type of sambar. 

Serving: 3 - 4 people
Preparation time: 40 minutes

1/2 Carrot
7 - 8 Beans
Toor dal - 1/2 cup
Moong dal - 1/4 cup
Sambar Powder - 1 1/2 spoon
Salt - according to taste
Few curry leaves
Tamarind - little
Turmeric - 1/4 spoon
Sugar / jaggery - 1/4 spoon
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup

Chop the vegetables and cook them in a pressure cooker along with washed dal, 3 - 4 drops of oil, turmeric and sufficient water. After 3 whistles, switch off the flame.
Grind the coconut, sambar powder and tamarind into fine paste.
Pour the masala paste, cooked dal and vegetables into a vessel and allow it to boil. Add salt, sugar/jaggery and some water, to adjust the consistency. 
Once it starts boiling, add few curry leaves. Also add chopped coriander if you like to do so.
Allow it to boil for 4 - 5 minutes and remove from the flame.
Serve hot with rice.

If you are using veggies like potato or beetroot for this kind of sambar, add some chopped onion while the sambar is boiling. It will give a nice aroma and doubles the taste of sambar.

  1. nice..But should we add raw curry leaves..?

    1. Yeah, raw curry leaves will add a nice aroma for this curry. But the curry will be nice even without curry leaves.
