In this Sambar recipe, the freshly roasted spice powder is used. This freshly homemade Sambar powder is helpful in enhancing the taste of Sambar. It adds a lot of flavor in it and also has health benefits. You can roast all spices in a thick bottom pan on medium flame and stir continuously make sure that spices do not get burnt. When all spices are get roasted then kept them aside in a plate. The main specialty of this Sambar recipe is that more veggies you can add more flavor you can get.

For making Sambar, firstly roughly chopped or diced all veggies and rinse Arhar Daal and Moong Daal at least 3-4 times to remove all impurities.
