Fusion Sambar with Mexican Veggies

No wonder I do heights in experimenting within kitchen but yes many times they turn out to be heavenly delicious. And one such awesome creation is this fusion sambar. Yesterday was the second time I prepared this. Got this idea from my better half. He suggested me to try out using these mexican vegetable mix in it. It is superfast and easy to make sambar. Could be a best and easy ones for bachelors too. This sambhar doesn't need any grinding. Usually when we tell sambar people think it involves grinding coconut for the gravy and all, but hurray this doesn't need all that.Here I share my fusion sambar recipe.
