I shared this bachelor sambar powder recipe in my previous post and without any delay i am sharing a simple sambar which can be made using that powder. This sambar has no dal or tamarind in it, so it fit a perfect title of bachelor sambar. But when you taste this sambar you will never find any difference at all. It taste just as good as normal sambar which you make.
