Sambar is a well-known and much publicised staple of South Indian mealtimes, be it a full course yelai pottu saapaddu (meal on a banana leaf) or a quick tiffin of crispy dosas. The secret of great Sambar obviously lies in the spice mix called Sambar Podi that gives it taste and aroma.

It is said of Girija Paati’s Sambar Podi that you will know when Sambar is being made from a kilometre away, as the fragrance will waft through your house and neighbourhood. While this may be an affectionate exaggeration of her grandchildren, the aroma of this Sambar Podi will definitely have your family at the dining table long before you serve it.

This Sambar Podi can be used to make the classic lunch sambar, the thicker "Arrachhu Vitta Sambar", the always popular Tomato Rasam, the delicious Urulai Kizanghu Roast (spicy potato curry), the all-time favourite Bisibela Bath, and a host of other mouth-watering South Indian delicacies.

Sambar Podi review

Have tried many sambar podis , but girija paati I found very amazing. It takes sambar to another dimension and get a lots of appreciation for my sambar. It tastes very aromatic and I use it for many Kara karis like potato, ladies finger . The curries also taste very fragrant and divine

Mother's favourite

When my kids left for university (both within the last 2 years), I packed the podis, pulikachal and a few karams from Girija Paati for them. The sambar podi is so flavourful that even if they mess up a bit while cooking, it tastes amazing.

Sambar Newbie

Even though I'm a newbie to making southindian food, the fragrance from sambar using this masala fills the whole house.

My fallback

I take packets of this sambar podi back home with me to London, everytime I visit Chennai. We eat some form of Sambar at least twice a week and this podi elevates my sambar game.

Tempted to lick my fingers

This podi makes my sambar finger licking good. Plus I was so happy that they have a step by step recipe to make the sambar on their website.
