Sambar Powder is a main ingredient in a lot of curries we prepare. In a nutshell, its not possible to survive for us without sambar powder at our home. I was planning to post some more curries which have sambar powder as a main ingredient. So decided to post the recipe for Sambar powder first.
Idli rice - 1/4 kg
Corriander seeds - 1/2 kg
Black pepper - 50 g
Jeera - 50 g
Methi - 25 g
Asafotida - 25 g
Whole turmeric - 50 g
1. Fry each ingredient separately in a pan without oil for 3-5 minutes each.
2. After cooled down, blend them all together till the powder becomes very nice.
3. With Sambar Powder, a lot of South-Indian curries can be prepared.
