This is one of my MIL's trademark dish. You are left with sambhar at home don't re heat it for next day breakfast just try this ericha kuzhambu given some more additions this will go so well with dosa and idlies.
What you need:
Leftover Sambhar -2 cups
Onions - 2 nos
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp

How to make:
Remove excess water from sambhar. In a deep kadai heat oil add onions saute well.

Once it turns translucent add red chilly powder, salt and sambhar.

Keep scrapping the corners of the kadai until they form a complete paste texture. It may take approx 15 - 20 mins.

Serve this ericha kuzhambu with dosa or idli.
