Sambhar Powder

Here is my mom's version of Sambhar Powder. It smells great and the taste too is yummy. You can prepare it, store it in an air-tight container and use it for months.

Dry Red Chilli - 1/4 Kg
Coriander Seeds - 3/4 Kg
Toor Dal - 1/4 Kg
Fenugreek - 50 gms
Pepper - 50 gms
Urad Dal - 50 gms
Curry Leaves - Few

Long Turmeric Sticks - 200 gms (Dry - Whole - 'Virali Manjal' in Tamil & 'Curcumin' in English).
Turmeric Stick Image Source: Google Search.
If you don't get Sticks use Turmeric Powder - 100 gms.
  1. Dry roast all the ingredients slightly (do not overroast).
  2. Grind it together.
  3. Store it in an air tight container.

This is very handy SeeC. Correct? Do you use masoor dhal or Tur dhal? Viji

First of all my apologies to everyone. I missed to add Turmeric in the Ingredients. I have modified it now.

Thanks Asha, It is worth trying :)

Thanks Archana, Even I like its appearance. Reflects its taste and aroma.

Thanks Srivalli.

Thanks Viji. It is Toor Dhal and not Masoor... I have captured Masoor Dhal in my picture (by mistake). Sorry for the confusion and Thanks for the Correction.
