Sambar Podi

Sambar Podi 003
Normally I get sambar powder from my mum. All these years I used to get it from her whenever I visit India. Last year I tried to do myself and it didn't come good and the color was towards darker color. This time when I visited her I noted down the steps and measurements. She grind the chillies separately and mix it together after other ingredients are powdered to retain the color. So here you go 

Red Chillies - 1 KG
Bengal Gram Dhal - 200g
Thuar Dhal - 100g
cumin seeds - 50 g
Pepper Seeds - 50 g
Fengrueek - 50g
Raw rice - 50g
asafoetida - 25 g
Turmeric - 50 g
Coriander seeds - 250g / 1/4 Kg
Mustard seeds - 50 g
Urad dhal - 50 g
Oil - 1 teaspoon
