    This is one of my favorite Jyoti products, its absolutely delicious. I add some water to mine to make it a bit less thick and throw it over rice. It makes for a super fast, easy and delicious meal. Highly recommend it!

    I love this dish served on rice! Nutritious and delicious!! I am such a big fan!! It has transformed my lunches for work for the better.

  3. Tanya

    This is a nice blend of mild but flavorful. Tastes great with rice and very convenient that it only needs to be re-heated.

  4. Danette Johnson

    Absolutely love Madras Sambar!!
    It has just the right balance of spices and heat. Lentils and veggies are a part of my healthy eating regime. Thank you so much for providing it!

  5. Valeria Bleistein

    Hope I managed to give 5 stars. All of the canned meals are versatile. What I do with Madras Sambar is add lots of steamed veggies to it, adding water. This makes a big pot of “Indian veggie stew”.

    This is a really delicious and healthy sambar. I love having a few cans in the pantry so I have something easy to “prepare” in a pinch. I make a pretty decent sambar myself. This one tastes a bit different – people have their own recipes – but it is truly delicious. It’s perfectly seasoned. You can eat it with rice, bread, or by itself in a bowl – it doesn’t need anything. I highly recommend this. It really does not taste like something that came out of a can. Thank you, Jyoti!!!!:)

    I’ve been eating this for years. It’s delicious, healthy, and great as a main dish or side dish. When my local Whole Foods stopped carrying it, I found it on Amazon, and for a better price. Thanks Amazon!

    Wonderful soup! I really love the vegetables and the spices. Jyoti makes the best canned food.

    I adore Jyoti products. They make meals easy and fast and still delicious. Their ingredients are simple and straightforward and never compromise flavor.

    Understanding how impossible it is to package and sell Indian cuisine that tastes authentic, I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. The ingredients were aromatic and flavorful; the food was simple to cook. I definitely prefer this over pouched Indian meals, and I will be buying more in the future.
