Instant Sambar Powder

Today, am going to share one of my mom’s most special recipe, Instant Sambar powder. It’s her own creation. You just have to mix in water, add vegetables, boil and temper and a delicious sambar is ready to serve. Just imagine how convenient it will be to make yummy sambar within few minutes.

Trust me when I say that it will be one of the most handy spice mix in your kitchen:)



Coriander seeds ( dhania) – 1 cup
Red chillies – 1 cup
Tuvar dal ( pigeon peas) – 1 cup
Chana dal ( Bengal gram/ kadala paruppu)- 1/2 cup
Pepper – 2 tbsps
Fenugreek ( methi/ vendhayam ) – 2 tbsps
Tamarind – 3/4th cup
Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
Curry leaves – 1/4th cup


Dry roast everything except turmeric powder separately till you get a good aroma. Cool and grind along with turmeric to a powder.
Store it in an airtight container.
