Brinjal drumstick sambar, a type of sambar recipe preparation which is very easy to prepare. It is one of the traditional and authentic recipes too.

Brinjal and Drumstick combination sambar is not a unique recipe. This sambar will be served in function, hotels, restaurants etc. Brinjal and drumsticks sambar is my favorite sambar. It has no onion and no garlic recipe.

This sambar recipe involves vegetables, roasted spices, coconut and tempering. The freshly roasted spices with coconut masala gives more taste than any other sambar powder. Brinjal is somewhat astringent in taste so we need to add tamarind, this gives extra deliciousness to the sambar. Cook the drumsticks first, then add brinjal, as it cooks quickly. If I add together, brinjal becomes mushy. For spiciness add more red chillies when roasting for the masala.

After the vegetables are completely cooked, add coconut masala and add enough water for consistency of sambar. Later, boil for a few minutes and spread the curry leaves. Simple tempering is enough for any sambar recipes. You can add any vegetable when the drumsticks are half cooked but brinjal is the best combination and the results of sambar is delicious.

Every time when I prepare the sambar, I roast my fresh spices and mix with coconut. Because I love this texture and freshness of sambar more than sambar powder. If you are in a hurry and want to cook easily, you can use sambar powder.

Here I am ending sambar recipe, thank you so much for giving your valuable time. Stay connected and support me with motivation to do the next interesting recipes.
