: I got a fancy Ruby gem set up on RubyForge, so now you can just gem install rubyful_soup and start screen-scraping the Rubyful Soup way. No dependency worries or anything. Plus, while I was figuring out how Ruby gems work, I wrote about five gem-related recipes for the Cookbook. I lauv zis cauntry!

[Comments] (3) Sumana's Mother's Sambar: I was a sous-chef for this operation so I don't precisely remember how you make it. This is my best guess.

Cook the dahl in water and turmeric in a pot. Add the vegetables and cook some more. (Throughout this adventure, add more water whenever neccessary.) Meanwhile, scrape out:

I scooped it out with a melon baller. Save half of it for the raitha. The other half goes into the blender and gets chopped into coconut flakes. Then to the blender add:

Blend into a paste. Scrape into the dahl and stir. Now the sambar is basically ready and just needs to cook some more. While it cooks make the raitha. To the leftover coconut add:

Stir to combine. Finish the sambar with about a tablespoon of brown sugar and 2 teaspoons of salt. Finish the raitha with 3/4 teaspoon of salt. Serve with rice.

I like putting the raitha on top of the sambar as a sauce. Sumana thinks this is really weird. But I used to put ranch dressing on top of pizza, and this is an analagous situation. To me, it is Sumana's habit of eating the raitha completely separately that is weird.
