Sambar rice with mixed vegetables

Kids are always fussy about eating vegetables. But it’s very important to include them in their diet. Having two kids who are very fussy eaters I have to find some to include veggies and they must be tasty and easily to eat even for infants. I started making this dish for my elder daughter as chewing food and eating is something next to impossible for her as she is too lazy. I found this the best way. It’s very tasty, easy to make and a regular recipe made very often at home.



Dry chilli – 3 – 4
Onions – 2 large
Tomatoes – 3 medium
Mixed vegetables – 1 1/5 cups
Toor dal – 1 cup
Par boiled rice – 1 cup
Curry leaves – few
Garlic – 10 – 12 flakes
Water – 6 – 6 1/2 cups
Salt to taste
Ghee – 2 – 3 tsp



Add 2-3 tsp oil in a pressure cooker and heat it on medium flame.
Add mustard seed and let it crakle. Then add urud dhal, Jeera, dry chillies and sauté them for a minute till the colour of chillies change slightly.
Add onions, curry leaves, garlics and sauté till onions just begin to change golden.
