Idli Sambar is a classic South Indian dish consisting of steamed rice cakes called idli served with a flavorful lentil soup known as sambar. Idli is made from a fermented batter of rice and urad dal, resulting in soft and fluffy cakes. Sambar is a spicy and tangy soup made with lentils, vegetables, tamarind, and a blend of aromatic spices. The idlis are typically soaked in the sambar, allowing them to absorb the flavors. It is a popular and comforting breakfast or snack in South India and is often served with coconut chutney and/or tomato chutney.
