Muttai Kose Mor Sambhar/Cabbage Curd Sambhar

The name of this sambhar itself is very interesting, definitely you will be curious to know more about this dish na?, yes i had the same feeling when i saw this sambhar in one of the Tamil magazine 'Sneghiti' supplement named 30 varieties of sambhar. Immediately i cooked this sambhar from that supplement book and trust me sour curd added in this sambhar gives a wonderful tanginess to the cabbage sambhar. Actually curd replace both the tamarind juice or lemon addition usually we go for making sambhar. Wat a wonderful way to finish the sour curds na, make this sambhar for a change with sour curd instead of making instant dosas or else avoid trashing the sour curds if you dont like or dont know how to make dishes out of them.

I served this delicious,mildly tangy sambhar for our lunch with a simple potato roast, you can enjoy this sambhar thoroughly with rotis or breakfast dishes like idlies or dosas. If you have cooked toordal in your fridge, this sambhar gets ready in a jiffy. This post goes  for the CC Challenge of the month.
