Raw Mango Sambar - South Indian Mango Sambar Recipe

Sambar is a main course in any South Indian meal. I have already posted a sambar recipe with black eyed beans and this is another variation of sambar with raw mango and toor dal. You can serve this with rice, ven pongal, idli, dosa, vada or even idiyappam. If you are looking for more recipes, then do check this Recipe Index.

  1. That pot is really gorgeous ! The sambar too ;)

  2. Wow... i liked the soup bowl/mug!!Colorful sambar..

  3. Love the mango in this! Pinning now!

  4. Loved the mango click inside the sambar...Our way of cooking is very different though. Only onion sambar would have onions and all other sambars have their own vegetables and their own taste! Nice clicks.


  5. Looks so tempting!..Wonderful Blog!
