Mulangi sambar, Radish sambar recipe

This is an all time favorite sambar for my hubby. Radish / mulangi sambar is often made by my MIL along with potato poriyal and this was the first dish she served me when i got married so it holds a sweet memory too and i also remember that the sambar was too good but i ate only little when i came to their house for the first time since i was so shy to ask for some more rice and sambar . Now i am happy to prepare it myself. So lets get started!

For this sambar preparation i used the radish harvested in my patio.
