I add everyday dishes like veggie dishes, dals and saar for 2 reasons, one is the often repeated question, if you don't eat meat or dairy products...what do you eat? Our normal everyday food is mostly vegan, we have all the ingredients at home at any time and its really fast to make. And the second reason is, all of us are pressed for time these days, having a bunch of easy recipes that don't include 5 tablespoons of oil/ghee and heavy frying is so useful. And yes, being a south Indian, the blog will be dominated by southy food.. :)
Saar is a 'soupy' dish, its literally either tomatoes or tamarind boiled with water and seasoned with mild spices. Though it is had with rice, a vegetable dish, papad and pickle, it can be had as a soup too. Amazing as a soup during winter and monsoons.
