Mango Sambhar in South Indian Thaali

          Mango Sambhar is flavourfull combo for rice.I love this vege ,more than any other in the world. Don'no why,may be because of its flavour and taste . This taste has been inherited by Rohith and he loves this sambhar a lot. Today I prepared mango sambhar and wanted to post the recipe,as one of my reader was asking me to post it for a long time. Suddenly ,I thought,why can't we prepare a thaali out of it. Its been ages ,where we had thaali in Chennai.We always enjoy that in Saravana Bhavan. This thought was there in my mind so long.Today I wanted to do it . So Grabbed all the dishes and arranged into a thaali.
           My South Indian Thaali had Veg cutlet,Phulka,Tomato thokku,Mango Sambhar,Ladies fingure pepper fry,Garlic Rasam,Rava Ladoo,Fryums,Paruppu podi,Rice ,Ghee and curd. I closed H's eyes and showed the thaali to him. My H was totally impressed with the thaali presentation.Rohith got excited and started mixing curd,sambhar ,ladies fingure . The best part is ,he started eating it immediately. The next day,while going to school,Rohith said "Amma mango sambhar was delicious and I want that variety food today also". Felt very happy and I would say,this is my happiness. This can never be replaced by anything in the World. Will post the recipe for Rava Ladoo,Vegetable cutlet,tomato thokku and phulka soon.
