Sambhar masala gives an awesome taste to sambhar. Making at home is so easy. You can store for months and can used whenever needed. But I personally prefer to make in small batches so enjoy the fresh Masala , which gives a super fragrant and delicious Sambhar ..

Well , this Masala is not any new in any household, being South Indian or not.


  • 1 Cup Dry Coriander
  • 4 tbsp Chana Dal
  • 1/4 cup Tuvar Dal
  • 3 tbsp Cumin
  • 2 tsp Fenugreek Seeds
  • 2 tsp Black Papper
  • 12-15 Dry Red Chilli
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Hing


In a kadai Dry roast each ingredients..  Roast them till it change to light brown colour on lowest flame. To roast evenly keep stiring ..

Allow it to cool lightly. Grind this roasted ingredients to make fine powder. While grinding add turmeric , asafoetida. (This is just to enhance the texture)..

Store in a dry , air tight container. Use when needed, One can store up to 2 to 3  months.. 

Happy Cooking 🙂 🙂
