Hey, Top of the evening to you. Am a regular viewer of Fit Foodie and do admire Chef VK for his interesting recipes. This recipe however, surprised me as Sambhar is a regular curry at our place. While Brinjal/Drumsticks and Ladyfingers did not find any place in this recipe, one of the most imp. ingredient -tamarind - also went missing. Am a true-blue Mallu Mumbaikar and this twist was somehow not tasty enough for me!!!!! Cheers /Rekha
