Sambar (Bitter Gourd & Ground Spices)
There is the simple Sambar (pronounced Saambaar) which has become such a popular dish all over India. Besides being a tasty, aromatic sauce/stew with vegetables, it is wonderfully healthy. Believe me, the “bitter gourd” loses almost all the bitterness when the process is completed.
But this Sambar here is a sort of exotic, gourmet Sambar, if you will. You use unusual vegetables and freshly grounded spices. However, the finished product is amazing. For one who relishes the Food and Spices of India, this will be a lovely variation of the traditional, plain Sambar.This dish will taste great with a lot of main dishes.
