Tamil brahmin sambar powder
I got this Tamil brahmin style sambar powder recipe from my neighbor friend Subha’s MIL. She is from Trichy. When I was telling Subha about my interest in Tamil brahmin recipes (Tambrahm style), she introduced her MIL who is an expert cook. I learnt few basic Tamil Iyer style recipes like sambar, rasam, more kuzhambu, vatha kuzhambu, puli sadam, pachadi and wrote down all of them in my notebook. At that time she shared her traditional, homemade sambar powder recipe and gave me a box full of it. I also prepared sambar using this sambar powder by adding mixed vegetables. It was so good and flavorful. Soon I will post the brahmin style sambar recipe here. Now I have given the ingredients for sambar powder in bulk quantity. You can sun dry them or dry roast in a kadai. Grind in a flour mill and store it for months. Soon I will try to ask her for smaller portion and update this post. Ok lets see how to make Tamil brahmin style sambar powder recipe.\

TAMIL BRAHMIN SAMBAR POWDER - METHOD 
  • Measure and take all the ingredients given above in a wide plate. Sun dry them for 3 to 4 hours. 

  • Instead of drying under the sun, you can dry roast all the ingredients one by one in a kadai just to heat them slightly. Do not burn any ingredient. It is done to remove the moisture content.

  • Transfer to a plate and let it cool down. Grind in a rice flour mill to a smooth powder.

  • Spread the sambar powder in a clean sheet and let it cool down. Then transfer to a big air tight container. Take the quantity required for 10 to 15 days and store in another small box.

  • Use a clean spoon to handle this powder. It stays good for months. Mami told they keep this powder up to 3 to 4 months.

  • For making sambar, you can use 1 to 2 tsp depending on the need. Soon I will post a detailed post about it.

  • Enjoy !

Note

                            
  • You should either sun dry the ingredients or dry roast in a kadai without burning the ingredients.
  • Its always better to store the sambar powder in two containers. Bulk quantity in one and smaller portion of it in another container. This helps to retain the flavor of sambar powder for long time.

Try this Tamil brahmin sambar powder recipe and use it for months !
