Dear Mye,

Your sambar podi is very different...My MIL prepares the Iyengar version...Thanks a ton for posting these podi recipes....I have a small clarification will there be a difference if I use the thin variety of red chillies or do I have to use only gundu milagai?

Thank you Sangeetha and Anusha.

Anusha, you can use the thin variety of chilly too. I would recommend the gundu milagai becoz it gives u nice colour and more quantity.
