  8. Thank you for such wonderful recipes Padhu.I am a novice cook who loves cooking but unfortunately most of the time I cook, there is no balance of flavours. Hoping an expert like you to help me out.
    Could you please let me know a foolproof ratio of jaggery to tamarind to sambar/rasam powder.. for sambar or rasam or for that matter in any recipe that requires jaggery and tamarind combination.

    1. Thank you Mk for liking my recipes. Just follow the instructions given for sambar, rasam etc, you will get good results. Do not add too much tamarind as it will give a sour taste.

  9. I am preparing sambar for 50 people. How much sambar powder should I use? Or PLease tell me the measurements for sambar powder for 50 people. Thank you in advance.

    1. Most of my sambar recipes serves 4 persons. Calculate for 50 persons and follow the same procedure.
