Sambar or Sambhar is an integral part of the South Indian cuisine. It is a lentil based stew with the addition of various vegetables or sometimes just one vegetable is added. It is a perfect accompaniment to idli’s ( steamed rice cakes), dosa’s ( crispy rice crepes), uttapam ( pretty much an Indian version of pizza :p) or medu wada ( savory Indian donuts :D) and the likes.
