I used this powder to make Sambar last night . I served it with idlis (see earlier post) and malgapoodi chutney (post to follow).
Years ago if anyone told me to use MTR products, I would have desisted – and desisted hard. However, in the past few months, I have been using a lot of their products – and I am impressed. REALLY. I highly recommend MTR brands now. Most of the foodstuff I really really like and some like this is decent.
To make sambar – using Madras Sambar powder is quite decent. Just follow the directions on the back of the packet and sambar is ready. The only addition I made to this recipe was I added red chili powder for more a spicy flavour.

Availability in Mumbai: I picked this pack when I was in Bangalore. I’m not sure if its available in Mumbai as I have checked a couple of grocery shops here and they don’t stock this product from the MTR range. However, it is easily available in any of the store in South India.
