Sambar is a food that is served with Plain rice, Idli, Dosa. It tastes best when served hot. There are different types of Sambar like Aracha sambar or grinded sambar, non-grinded sambar or plain sambar, mor kuzhambu, milagu kuzhambu, vathal kuzhambu, parupu urndai kuzhambu etc. This recipe is for Aracha sambar or grinded sambar. It is a daily food in lot of places in South India. I am using small onions here, you could also use drumstick, raddish, lady finger (okra), white pumpkin etc. I am sharing this for this month's Marathon.

Poli is a very popular festival food and it is called by various names across India. Some names of Poli are Tamil: போளி Poli, Puran poli (Marathi & Konkani: पुरणपोळी or पुरणाची पोळी, Gujarati: પોળી, Kannada: Obbattu/Hollige, Telugu: Bobbattlu... This is a like a stuffed paratha with a sweet stuffing. Ensure that there is no moisture in the kadalai parupu. Also DO NOT pressure cook the kadalai parupu, it may get mushy. Traditionally poli will be pressed on plantain leaf. Now we can use plastic paper if you cannot lay hands on plaintain leaf. It is served hot with ghee. The size of the poli should be similar to a puri and not bigger. This makes 12 polis. This is made on Tamizh Varuzhapirappu (Tamil New Year) which is celebrated today (14.4.2013) this year.
