Mixed Vegetable Sambhar with Sprouted Fenugreek

The Mixed Vegetable sambhar is excellent for health. The sprouted fenugreek and pumpkin is great for diabetics. This is a favourite in the house and my mom makes it often.

Tamarind (small)
Medium sized tomato 2
Toor Dal 1/2 cup
Sprouted fenugreek 1/2 cup
Chopped radish 1 cup
Chopped carrots 1 cup
Yellow pumpkin 1/2 cup
Spinach 1 cup
Coriander leaves
Curry leaves
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Sambhar powder 1 tbsp

For the Sambhar Powder, fry the following ingredients and dry grind.
