Sambar Powder


1 tbs urad dhal
2 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
10 methi (fenugreek) seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds
3 dried red chilies, broken
10 curry leaves
8 peppercorns


1. Take all these and fry together until you get an aroma.
Light brown fry is good, don't blacken the seeds.
2. Transfer from pan to cold plate. Allow seeds to fully cool.
3. Grind by hand or in a coffee grinder.**
4. The entirety of this powder can be used to make sambar
for about 15 people.

**I have purchased a coffee grinder that I use only to grind spices.

Do not use the same grinder to grind coffee.
