…can you please tell me what is the difference between Sambhar and Brahmin Sambhar?
A friend of mine asked me this doubt. I told her that Brahmins was a brand. (My MIL swears by the Brahmins Sambhar powder making my FIL import it for her from Kerala to Calcutta every time he goes there!)
She wrote back saying ‘No, this is the Eastern Brand am talking about’
And sent me this picture!
Okay, the logical thing to do would be to check the ingredients, right?
That is what she did!
“Corriander, Chilli, Gram Dhal, Urad Dal, Fenugreek, Kashmiri Chilli, Salt, Turmeric, Asafoetida, Curry Leaf”
Then why on earth is the name different? What is so Brahminish about one?
I do know the Tambrams dont eat onion and garlic. But the masala is the same eh?
Can you please tell us the difference and how we can use them to make Brahminish and non Brahminish Sambhar?
Thank you in advance
The confused cook!
