Beetroot Sambar | Sambar Recipe

             Beetroot Sambhar is a lentil based stew which is so close to my family especially my brother who love this dish a lot. This is my mom’s recipe, during my college days whenever I take this for my lunch, all my friends grab my lunch box and they love to eat this sambhar. This is a nice transition to a regular sambhar. I love the combination of beetroot sambhar with ghee and colocasia fry,  which is totally out of the world. Give it try, you will love this..
