Cook's Notes

Freeze soup in small containers, then pull out only what you need; there's no need to thaw the soup before reheating.

    I did not use canned diced tomatoes because they have an added preservative in them to maintain their shape. The result is a rubbery bit of 'red something' with absolutely no flavor. Instead, I used (homemade) canned tomatoes. You can also use peeled whole tomatoes from a can, crushed with your hands. I also used beef broth.

    Too much tomato. Ends up being tomato soup with vegetables. 14 or 15 ounce can would be plenty. Added som beans. Great flavor from the Italian seasoning.

    This recipe is as close to my mother's standard Sunday soup as I could find. It is wonderful. The comment about it being too much tomato got it totally wrong. This is the reason I like it. Most veggie soup doesn't have enough tomato. I make it for groups with cornbread and they all flip. I might go overboard on the veggies sometimes, but hey.

    I added several cubes of beef bouillon and a little bit of sugar to the pot. The recipe as written is very bland and taste like tomatoes. It was much better after I spruced it up a little.

      So, you liked it better once it was no longer vegetable soup? What a weird modification.

    This is my favorite vegetable soup recipe. I added squash, broccoli, cauliflower, a couple bay leaves, and minced garlic. I also added some sugar and heavy cream to even out the tomato taste and make it sweeter.

    Have made this several times, always delicious. My favorite veg soup recipe! I think the tomato paste and Italian seasoning make it especially good.

    Kerala Sambar is different from the typical Sambars made in the other South Indian states. Kerala Sambar is made using a mixture of different vegetables whereas the other sambhar is made using a single vegetable. The vegetables mostly added to Sambar are the following :- * Potato * Plantain (Vazhakka) * Yam (Chenna) * Carrot * Drum Sticks (Muringakka) * Okra/Lady’s Finger (Vendakka) * Beans * Sambar Cucumber (Velarikka) * Ash Gourd (Kumbalanga) * Ivy Gourd (Kovakka) * Tomato * Pumpkin (Mathanga)
