Thankyou so much for your precious comment. I felt so happy to know that you have tried many of my recipes and liked it.
You are right. I add sambar powder for most of my dishes. Actually, I get my sambar powder from my MIL. I'll get the recipe from her soon and mail it to you. Until then please bear with me please.
