Pappu Charu (mild sambhar) – By VahChef @

hello namaste salaamwalekum satsriyakaal; welcome back to another session with your VahChef at Today I’m going to make a dish what my mom prepared pretty much 8370
two times this dish we call it as Pappu charu, this is somewhat similar to
sambhar of andhra pradesh instead of adding all those masalas here we make it a little milder version and it tastes awesome. To make this dish
had one tablespoon of oil, half a teaspoon of mustard seeds, add red chilly
when the mustard seeds crackle add cumin seeds, add sliced onion, add pinch of hing, pinch of turmeric, curry leaves, green chillies you can slice those green chillies, ginger-garlic paste just half a teaspoon and mix all of it add cubes of tomato just one big tomato should be good enough. To this add tamarind juice this is the tamarind that has been soaked and the juice extracted, add a chili powder and half of salt once it comes to a boil the raw flavor
of it disappears that’s when you add good amount of water and now you’ve got to cook it for 20 minutes that’s when we’re going to add
lentil to it here I’ve got dal that I have boiled and I cooked to a a point where it got totally mashed up I in fact I added a little bit of
turmeric to the dal when I boil it and for one cup of dal, I almost added one liter of water that is approximate quantity but you can adjust the consistency later; add this kind of mashed dal in this, do not make a paste out of it a fine paste isn’t good just a mash it little bit and then add add half a teaspoon of sugar, 1 tsp of ghee; ghee is clarified butter bring it to a boil and let it cook for
10-15 minutes that’s when most part of this foam
disappears that’s when your Pappu charu is ready it almost took 25 minutes of boiling, i’m
going to switch off the flame and you know after you switch off you can still
adjust the seasoning just check lot of times people do a
mistake that they don’t check their whatever curries they make properly so
all you need to do is you know first smell it, a small bit and you should
feel the right amount of salt and the flavor should be right if not adjust the
salt little bit and you will get your perfect dish whatever you’re making so finish it off with a little bit of
coriander leaves so dear friends i hope you enjoyed to learn how to make this
popular with your VahChef. This Pappu Charu is a regular dish that features in
my house every other day my mom makes and we all love it of course she sometimes makes variations of it sometimes she adds drum stick or a radish or any other ingredients make
different kind of pappu charu but this is a base pappu charu which I love it but friends remember vahrehvah is all about inspiring others to cook so please post your recipes and cooking tips at so others can benefit from your great
cooking thank you.

  12. aparna sarasam says:

    Chef, in Telangana region, we add jeera, methi & dhaniya powders to our pappu charu. Sugar is added only if it is too sour. Hing is not added because then it becomes an Andhra/Tamil dish. Just FYI.

    Hi Sanjay.. Thanks for the recipe.. It came out to be too good.. Many times i tried in a different way and it used to come worst.. Finally "The VAHREVAH" made my Pappu charu VAHREVAH.. I got to know the mistake.. I didnt know that we need to pre-boil the water before adding dal.. Thank you so much.. It came out to be too good..And i have a doubt. what is the case if the tamarind is not sufficient and we got to know at the end?? Do we need to add it then and again boil??
