Sambar powder is the essence of all south indian cooking. I learnt to make this powder from my amma.
  • Dried red chillies- 250gm
  • Coriander seeds - 250gm
  • Turmeric - 50gm
  • Channa dal - 100gm
  • Toor dal - 100gm
  • Pepper - 50gm
  • Cumin seeds - 50gm
  • Fenugreek - 50gm
  • Curry leaves - one small cup
  • Boiled rice - 1tbsp
  • Roast coriander seeds, channa dal, toor dal, pepper, cumin seeds, fenugreek, curry leaves, and boiled rice. (Don't roast too much as the orifginal flavor will go off, alternatively you can even sun dry all the ingredients)
  • Now grind the roasted ingredients along with red chillies and turmeric.
  • Store the sambar powder in a clean, air tight container.
