NOTE :

  1. To make sambar powder in large quantity , increase everything proportionately. ie. if you have taken 2 cups dhania , add jeera 1/2 cup .
  2. You can increase / decrease red chilli quantity based on your preference .
  3. Use both byadgi ( kashmiri ) chilli and guntur variety chilli . byadgi gives nice color and guntur is for spiciness .
  4. The blend stays good for years! You can also divide the quantity , pack in ziplock and store in refrigerator. I usually prefer to make smaller and more frequent batches of Sambar powder
  5. You can even add few spoons of it while making various stir fries / curries / rice bath .
