Sambhar Podi


Recently a sister of mine asked me for this recipie. She tried making sambhar with the sambhar powder available in shops. But it definately didnt taste good. So she asked me for this one. So here it is! πŸ™‚

This is probably the most popular recipie in the whole of South India. Of course, there are variation from place-to-place, family-to-family. This is what we use in my family.


1 cup coriander seeds
1 cup chana dal
2 tsp methi seeds (fenugreek)
4tsp urad dal
2 large handfuls dry red chillies


  • Dry roast all the ingredients together till the dalls look golden brown in colour and lose their raw look.
  • Once cooled, grind the mixture to a fine powder.
  • Store in an air-tight container.
