Sambhar is a South Indian Delicacy, prepared with a mix of lentils and vegetable stew. It is most commonly enjoyed in breakfast and lunch with Idli and Wada or Rice too. I have made this amazing dish with rice. Sambhar is very light on stomach and as it has a lot of veggies in it, add the nutritional value. The recipe seems to be that would take most of the effort but trust me it is very easy to make this. The whole dish comprises of many ingredients, let's have a look.

To get a better perspective of the preparation you have, photographs are required to be displayed in the preparation environment. This is very important to curators.


Sambar is delicious, and yours looks very nice, would love to try it. I agree with @sirenahippie, the photos are very restrictive, not very engaging for curators. After all this time you still have not uploaded a profile pic, and your intro post has no pictures of you in it, neither do any of your posts.

I begin to think there is no way that this is not a duplicate account, and you've never made any efforts to prove us wrong. I've begged to try and engage in the community for months, but still no progress on that front either.
