Green Tomatoes Sambar- South Indian Recipe


Green tomatoes, lentil, eggplant and roasted ground coconut masala cooked together to make this finger licking sambar... Harvest season has come to an end and I had to pick all the unripe green tomatoes form my veggie garden. I got a lot of green tomatoes sitting on my counter top, thought of letting them ripen in my kitchen. However, it seems there a lot of South Indian recipes that can be made with green tomatoes- sambar, theeyal, avial etc. Since, green tomatoes will impart the needed sourness to the dish, this can be used to replace tamarind or green mangoes. As my first dish, I tried this sambar using green tomatoes and I loved it. I served with Oats Idli, tasted delicious...
