Mixed Vegetable Sambar

Mixed Vegetable Sambar – As I explained you in my previous recipes regarding the preparation of different style of sambars, here we can speak about a sambar mixed with different type of vegetables. Since we add varieties of vegetables in to sambar the taste and aroma of the sambar will be very good. This type of sambar is very much preferable in parties, like when there is bulk cooking in many of the places sambar will be the main item in the menu.
