Running out of sambhar powder? Or often wondering the secret-ingredient for restaurant-styled thick sambhar?? Don't worry.... this, araichu vitta sambhar comes to your rescue :D 'Araichu vitta' in tamil means freshly grounded, accordingly this sambhar utlizes an medley of spices from your kitchen, that are freshly dry-roasted and powdered. This powder, not only comes in handy when your sambhar powder goes out of stock, but also acts as an, 'thickening agent', thus making the latter more fragrant, more tasty and restaurant-styled.
And, one other difference from sambhar is that, in araichu vitta sambhar, tempering is done by the end.

Hence, tempering accordingly with number of red chillies might yield you an perfect, balanced output. This is really, an blessing in disguise, isn't it?
