Brinjal Sambar Recipe | Kathirikai (Vankaya) Sambar | Easy Sambar Recipes

Kathirikai Sambar or Brinjal sambar is easy sambar recipe where brinjal is used and normal sambar procedure followed. I like brinjal sambar a lot and specially with vankaya I like when sambar is made too, this sambar recipe we can serve with rice and also with idli/dosa, tiffin variety. Goes perfectly with rice and we don't really required any side dish just fryums or papad makes comforting lunch or we can pair along simple potato fry, okra fry etc.

We can use regular small brinjal variety or also the long onces though small ones are better to use. Made with good homemade sambar powder any sambar taste more delicious. If you look for simple and easy sambar then this recipe is for you and also to make some quick easy meal, nothing much to be done just serve with some papad, fryums and delish lunch is ready. I normally do the tempering first then follow the sambar making procedure. You can prepare the sambar and do add tadka finally too. Enjoy these yummy brinjal sambar with rice of tiffin items.
