Very Good Morning Makkale(People), the key to a good meal is simplicity. This simple meal is not a fancy Sunday meal though I am sharing my Flashback Friday meal.
Being a South Indian, I make different types of sambar at home. Arachuvitta sambar is something very close to my heart because I learned to make it after marriage. I am sharing my MIL’s style arachuvitta sambar that has a strong coriander seeds flavor with Chinna vengayam.
