Once in a while i make Sambaar with lots of vegetables. I find this kind of Sambaar to be more healtier than usual sambaar with one or two vegetables.Heard from an aunty that while cooking there must be different colours of vegetables as each and every coloured vegetables has different kinds of vitamins in them .For example when u make green leaves with dal then make carrot Poriyal. Though both look colourful , we all definitely know that Green leaves and carrot are good for health. I kept these words in mind and started making Sambaar with mixed vegetables once in 2 weeks.
So here is the recipe. Hope u will find this interesting.
