Udipi Sambar - Udupi sambar - Side dish for Idli / dosa or rice - Sambar with freshly masala

I seldom do Araichu Vitta Sambar or Arachuvitta sambar as it takes only a bit of time also the sambar tends to be thick. Then When my mum visited me I realized I was grinding too much masala and dhal is also more. We don't need same amount of dhal as in normal sambar. So Now days I do make it more often and it is not that thick any more. Making freshly grinded masala base sambar tastes really good and perfect alternativw to normal sambar powder based sambars
