Throughout much of India, especially the southern states, households have their own unique sambar blend. Sambar has a bit more heat and complexity than other spice blends. It begins with roasting urad dal and toor dal. These pulses give a heartiness and richness to the spice blend. Additionally, the spices are roasted to add a depth of flavor that will bring character to any dish.
Rather than cooking with it, we recommend that you use it as a condiment tableside for grain dishes, curries, and whatever else you might like to bring some sophisticated heat to.
Ingredients: urad dal*, toor dal*, red chilies*, coriander seeds*, fenugreek seeds*, fresh curry leaves, cumin seeds*, black pepper*, asofoetida, turmeric powder*
