Blogging Marathon#64: Week 4/ Day 3
Theme: Mega BM Bookmarked Recipes
Dish: Leeks Sambar from Vidhya
For the final day of this month’s marathon, I have an interesting sambar made with Leeks from Vidhya’s blog. I bookmarked it the minute I saw it on her blog and made it once I got my hands on some leeks.
Leeks belong to the ‘Allium’ family along with onions and garlic. They have a mild onion-like taste and are crunchy when eaten raw. But they get soft and mild when cooked. I buy leeks quite often and make pasta sauces or dry sautes with them. Vidhya’s leek sambar sounded very interesting and delicious.
Sambar turned out delicious. Vidhya’s method of making sambar was a little different from my mom’s method. I made some homemade sambar powder (I will share the recipe soon) and it gave the dish a nice flavor. We had it with steamed rice for lunch and then with idlis the next day.
