Sambar, also spelt sambhar, is a lentil-based vegetable stew. It is popular in South Indian tamil Samayal and Sri Lankan Tamil cuisines, adapted in each to its taste and environment. Sambar is usually served with steamed rice as one of the main courses of both formal and everyday south Indian cuisine. A two-course meal of Sambar mixed with rice and eaten with some sort of vegetable side dish followed by yoghurt mixed with rice is a prime southern Indian staple.
