How to make sambar powder at home–Homemade easy sambar powder recipe

   I have never made sambar powder on my own. I always get a huge stock from my native place. I store it in a freezer and use small quantities at regular intervals and it lasts till my next visit to India. But I have seen my mom make the powder at home.I have even bought back the powder made by my grandmom. So as I had mentioned in this post, I am posting my grandmom’s sambar powder recipe for people who wish to make it at home.
