Sambhar Rice

I tasted this delicacy for the first time at a south indian restaurant near my house and just loved it.It tastes just like sambhar mixed with rice but has a different way of making it. When I was doing some research about the dish I came across an interesting fact about origin of Sambar.

The origin of Sambhar is uncertain though legends has it that it originated in the kitchen of Thanjavur Marathas ruler Shahuji, during the 18th century from the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is believed that Shahji had a liking for a dish called amti which had kokum as one of its main ingredients. In one particular season, the kokum which was imported from the Maratha homeland ran out of supply and someone suggested to him that the locals used tamarind pulp for sourness. Shahji experimented the dish with the pigeon peas, vegetables, spices and the tamarind pulp and served his coterie and his cousin, Sambhaji who was visiting him. The court liked the dish and named it sambhar after the guest of the day, Sambhaji.
