A secret blend of traditional, South Indian spices and strengthening, hand-roasted lentils

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.

The best Sambhar Masala ever

Hey Girja Pati Team,
I would like to thanks to you for providing such amazing sambhar masala available online. I just loved it . Being north India we always try to make sambhar with market packed masala and never got that authentic taste.
But I must say when I used your Sambhar podi it taste amazingly good. I can easily recall my visit to Chennai.
Loved it made it amazingly.

That is so lovely to hear Anju. We love sharing our flavours with new Girija Paati family members. Welcome to the family.

Tasty Sambar Powder

The Sambar powder is very tasty and you just get that home made feeling. We have tried few other products, but after trying Girija Pati's Sambar powder, the hot and tasty sambar is quite tempting to have it again and again. Keep up the good work. I definitely recommend this product.

Really happy that you enjoyed a classic Girija Paati product Pradeep. Thanks for sharing this.


I was always looking for authentic sambar podi home made not the one you get on store in package which is machine made and full of colour and preservatives.
This Sambar Masala is so amazing that you get that authentic taste .
Just Aroma can make you feel hungry.
