Sambar Podi - Sambar powder recipe - Mum special Sambar powder - Home made sambar powder

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 a darker color. This time when I visited her I noted down the steps and measurements. She grinds the chilies separately and mixes it together after other ingredients are powdered to retain the color. So here you go

Bengal Gram Dhal - 200g
Thuar Dhal - 100g
cumin seeds - 50 g
Pepper Seeds - 50 g
