Araichu Vitta Sambar

ARAICHU VITTA SAMBAR.... 

One of the traditional recipe again from Tamil brahmins, which almost occupies in many festives / events.  I have normally heard that this araichu vitta sambar goes well with fresh green vegetables... But my favorite always only with pacha sundakkai, which tastes yumm and good for health too... A member from other group has requested to post how to make this Araichu vitta sambar, traditionally.  The traditional method lies, in making of the Grinded Paste.. especially in Ammikkal... Brahmins use fresh vegetables, while non-brahmins use Chinna vengayam aka Shallots for this Araichu Vitta sambar in villages.  Here is the proportion for grainding the paste of the ingredients...

Dhaniya 1 tsp, Channa Dal 1 tsp, Red Chilly 4 nos, Aaharam Asafoetida 1/2 tsp, Grated Coconut 5 tsp, Dry saute all the ingredients, and grind to paste, adding little water.... As usual, while making sambar, add this paste and bring to boil.  

(Hint : some people use 2 red chillies and add Sambar Powder additionally.. But this paste itself is sufficient to make Araichu vitta Sambar.)
