Sambhar Powder -2 (Brahmin’s style)


Brahmin’s style Sambhar powder is another  version i tried at home. Nowadays i am used to grinding  Sambhar powder at home and it is fun to make them and store in specially bought containers. Healthy and safe it is also a good passion . So this time i followed Sharmi’s passion recipe ,which i had tried earlier and also  bought a new container @Daiso only S$2.And after carefully roasting and grinding the powder again and again i got the yummy yield. It will last for 1 and half months i suppose and again for another recipe and container. Life goes like this… beautifully and freshly …. just like my Freshly ground Sambhar powder.
