Drumstick and Lentil Stew, aka Murungakai Sambar

Amongst the zillions of sambar varieties, this is probably one of the best I love, simply because of the little drumsticks in it that add so much flavour and comfort (think of the fact that you have to pick them up and artfully drive them between your teeth to remove that yummy flesh!). Added fresh tamarind pulp perfects it and remember to use fresh sambar powder, since spices can be unforgiving to the taste if kept for a longer time.

Great on its own if not too hot, but pairs well with plain rice- how can it not, world?
