Spicy Sambar Powder.

Sambar Powder if prepared in home will do wonders . This home made sambar powder will definitely enhance the flavor of sambar.This sambar powder can successfully be used in making vatha kulambu also.I grind this sambar powder once in a month.This sambar podi is also called Karnataka sambar powder , as it contains cinnamon. You can leave cinnamon , if you hate the smell. But i add a little bit only and i love that karnataka sambar powder very much.
