Masala - Sambar

India / House Blend
  • Double sized masala sambar whole

Sambar is the traditional lentil soup of southern India, notably the Kerala region. Classically served with chutney and rice, Sambar Masala is a daily staple but there is nothing gruelish about it. The seasoning is exotic and complex, and almost any vegetable can be added depending on the whim of the chef. Sambar can range from thin and brothy to thick, rich and curry-like. Toasted lentils (urad dal) and coconut give this blend both thickening properties and a unique flavor.
