Kuzhambu Milagai Thool


This is my version of the masala powder. It is not very hot in spice level. I use this for everything like Sambhar, fish kulambhu, fish fry etc.. I usually ask my mom to make this and she sends me every 6 months. If you want to increase the spice level you can add more chilli powder while cooking.


Whole red chillies(round) – 1/2 kg

Coriander seeds – 1.5 kg

Toor dal – 100g

Channa dal – 100g

Pachai arisi – 100g

Whole black pepper – 100g

Jeera – 100g

Fenugreek seeds – 100g

Whole turmeric – 50g


Dry all the above ingredients under sun or dry roast them well. Then grind them to a fine powder.
