By making the sambar podi on our own, we can assure the quality and purity of the sambar powder which we use frequently at home. There is no doubt about the hygiene.

Homemade Sambar Powder Recipe - You have the flexibility to adjust the quantity of the ingredients you use according to your preference and taste. For example, if you want it to be more spicy, you can add more red chillies than the mentioned quantity in the below sambar powder recipe. I have not added pepper in this sambar powder recipe. If you like, you can add while making sambar podi.




Color of the sambar powder | Sambar podi:

Color of the sambar powder or sambar podi(in Tamil) purely depends on the color of the ingredients and how you roast them. When you dry roast the ingredients, please do not roast it till they turn to dark brown color since the color of sambar powder will not have the hint of orange color if you do so.  The sambar powder will be in brown color if you roast them too much. You need to roast only till nice aroma comes. Also, the color of the sambar podi greatly depends on the variety of dry red chillies you use.
