Brinjal and Carrot Sambar

1 cup of masoor dal/red lentils
1 tbsp of meat curry powder
1 brinjal (chopped)
1/2 carrot (chopped)
5 garlic pods
1 tsp of gingely oil
1/2 tsp of hing
Salt to taste

3 pcs red dried chilli
2 tsp of mixed tempering spices
1 sprig of curry leaves
1 tomato (cut into wedges)
5 shallots (chopped)
2 tbsp of oil

Soak masoor dal in hot water for about 10 minutes and clean until the water runs clear, then pressure cook the dal with gingelly oil, hing, garlic, 3 cups of water and salt until the dal is completely cooked and mashed. It takes about 3 to 4 whistle in a pressure cooker.

Now add brinjal, carrot and curry powder to the dal and cook for 5 more minutes. Finally temper the sambar with the tempering agent and pour it to the sambar. Close the lid of the cooker to trap the aroma inside until ready to serve.

Now our Brinjal and Carrot Sambar is ready to be served, do try and let me know how it turned out for you!
