Easy sambar | Pressure cooker radish sambar( video recipe)

Easy pressure cooker sambar with step by step picture and video.

Sambar is a one-dish which is quite common in many households in South India. Each one makes their way for sambar. Some cook dal and veggies separately then mix it and boil with sambar powder with tempering at last. I make that way when I use drumstick as a vegetable because it gets overcooked when done in a pressure cooker. This method is my most common method which I at least make once a week. do try this quick sambar recipe and share your experience.
