A very tasty and scrumptious meal for lunch/dinner is the steamed rice with Sambar and vendakkai(okra) poriyal.
Varuthu Aracha Sambar:
The sambar is a very common curry in most households in South India. This version goes the extra mile of adding freshly ground spices into the lentil based curry. It is popularly called as Varuthu aracha (roasted and ground) sambar. Because of the fresh masala, it has a very rich aroma and additional taste which is truly divine. The sambar goes well with steamed rice, dosa or vadai. Add a hint of ghee along with the sambar while mixing with rice to make it extra tasty.
