Vegetable Idly using Red Matta Rice and Easy Sambhar

I had mentioned in my earlier post about the benefits of Red Matta Rice and trying lots of recipes with them. This is really a very healthy breakfast for kids. I used to call this sambhar as Avasara Sambhar, when I find no sufficient time or no vegetables, used to prepare this. Very simple, easy and flavorful.
