SAMBAR POWDER RECIPE | HOME MADE SAMBAR POWDER | SAMBAR PODI RECIPE

  Sambar powder|Sambar podi  is generally made at our place in bulk by drying it under sun and grinding it in the mills where they grind the ingredients of sambar powder into a fine powder.
When i posted the recipe of Rasam  Powder , i got many mails to post the recipe for sambar powder. I use sambar powder in most of my recipes and i love the one which my mom makes in bulk and pack for me during our visit to India. She is very particular to use the best quality of the ingredients as it will give a nice flavor to the sambar.

  • Dry all the ingredients separately in a wide plate or on a newspaper in hot sun for 6-7 hours.
  • If you didn’t get proper sun during rainy days, u can microwave the ingredients for few minutes without changing the color of the ingredients.
  • Give it to a mill (rice mill) and make it into a fine powder.
  • Once done , spread the Sambar powder in a wide plate in shade (inside the house) for 10 minutes and store them in a dry, clean container. Always handle this with a dry spoon.
  • You can keep this in the refrigerator for longer use.

  23. Hi Jeyashri! U really have an amazing food site here that novices like me could make a great use of your knowledge. Thank you for that to start with. I am tired of using store bought sambar powders and your recipe is so tempting to try it at home for the 1st time and I am so excited abt it. The only problem i have is your measurements. Do you mind to share with me the measurements in CUPS please????? I really appreciate that. I hope it is not too much to ask. Thank you in advance!
