Recipe Ingredients for Geetha Perima's Instant Sambar Powder

1 kg (Toor Dal / yellow lentils)
100 grams coriander (dhania / malli)
25 grams channa dal (/ bengal gram / kadala paruppu)
50 grams dry red chillies
10 grams fenugreek seeds
2 tbsp tamarind (large lime-sized ball)
2 tbsp black pepper
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp hing
1 tsp red chili powder (Kashmiri chilli)

Recipe Directions for Geetha Perima's Instant Sambar Powder

  1. 1. Heat about 2 tsp oil in a pan and lightly fry the red chillies. When they start to brown, remove and set aside to cool.

  2. 2. Remove all strings and other stuff from the tamarind. Separate into pieces. Add these to the same oil and fry by pressing down, making sure all the sides are roasted. Keep fire on sim and continue to roast for about 5 mins. It will be very soft at this stage. Drain and set aside to cool. You will find that the tamarind has gone crisp and brittle to touch.

  3. 3. The other ingredients don't need to be roasted. Starting with the dal, powder each ingredient separately and keep adding to a big bowl. The tamarind will powder nicely once its cool.

  4. 4. Mix all ingredients well with salt. Store in an air tight container and use to make easy and quick sambar.

  5. To Use:

  6. To serve two, boil about 3 glasses water and add 2-3 tbsp of the instant sambar powder. Add chopped vegetables and onions. Let it boil on sim until the vegetables are cooked. Serve hot. This powder will make sambar that's a bit watery. If you want it thicker, also add some cooked toor dal while preparing it.
