    we love sambar but kind of sticked to mooli or drumstick sambar all the time…. that was because we didnt know that sambar can be made even with gummadikai…. it was awesome… thank you so much….

      Not really necessary for hulled split pulses but we at home always soak it for sometime before cooking. This is my grandma's trick, any pulse would normally have little phytic acid on its bran and seed, which is not good for health and better to get rid off. These are usually removed while hulling process, but who knows?? what kind of processing each pulse go through? always better to soak any pulse for few minutes, rinse and then cook. Moreover will also reduce the cooking time and gives nice creamy texture.
