WV12 ~ Sambar Soopa

Chamanthi (Chrysanthemum) from Front yard
Chamanthi

Morning:
A cup of ragi ganji without sweetener
A cup of cucumber slices with some lemon juice and pepper

Noon:
A big bowl of veggie-rich sambar soopa
Quarter cup of bendi curry with yogurt (Dahi bendi)
1 boiled egg, yellow removed

Evening:
A glass of ginger buttermilk

Night:
1 moong dal + chana dal dosa (Adai) with a cup of sambar soopa
(I couldn’t eat much. I was tired by night and food lost the appeal.)

Workout:
Made murukulu and atrasalu (adhirasam) for the Vara Laxmi Pooja on Friday.

In retrospect:
Good day with lots of tempting food. Because I made them standing in front of stove for hours inhaling the oil smoke, it was easy to resist the temptation.

Vegetables for Sambar Soopa
Carrot, Mullangi, Yellow Squash, Okra~ Vegetables for Sambar Soopa

Sambar Soopa

A combination of four types of seasonal vegetables
Onion/shallots, tomatoes and cilantro
Toor dal and sambar powder
Asafetida Tadka
Very thick consistency

That is my definition of Sambar Soopa. Four kinds of vegetables and the aromatic spices convert an ordinary sambar into a rich, healthy and comforting sambar soopa worthy of Workout Vratham.
