What are the proportions of you want to make this for 40 people. I have a small function coming up and would like to make this for the occassion.

Sorry I just saw this comment. I am not sure if this will be helpful now. I am not exactly sure about 30 people but you can increase the amount of lentils/dal by 5 times which means about 4 cups and proportionately increase the spices accordingly.

Anonymous,
That is a good question. The taste for the Hotel Sambhar is a bit more intense than the regular sambhar which just uses the sambhar powder.
The taste for this particular sambhar comes from the freshly roasted and blended spices. Adding more sambhar powder would not make it equal. It would be more hot (from the red chilies) than you want it to be. Also the roasted and ground coconut is a very essential ingredient.

Hi Just a question. Most of the ingredients for the "paste" are already in the sambar powder so why do you duplicate it. Can't you use a little bit more sambar powder instead of using the paste?

2009-08-16T18:09:03.594-04:00

Anon, I am not sure what you mean by how much water needs to be taken. The toor dal is cooked with enough water and add more water if the sambhar is too thick after the dal has been added.

I have added water explicitly in the list of ingredients. Thanks.

2009-08-16T14:52:46.534-04:00

I have gone through many how to make sambar receipe and find none has given how much of water has to be taken which is one of the main ingredients to get the best taste of sambar.

2009-05-30T15:49:52.705-04:00

Hi,
Just made the Sambhar now with just onions and tomato. And yes, the paste did make all the difference. Made our Masala Dosai lunch complete!
Thank you!

2008-11-21T21:39:00.000-05:00

Mansa, the proportions I have mentioned are for about 4 - 6 people. When I cooked the sambhar for about 30 people I used about 3 1/2 cups of dal. Let me know how it turns out.

SMN the best combo ever.

Purnima eager to hear how it turned out for you.

Richa, yes large amount of sambhar ends up tasting blah sometimes, the paste really helps.

Anjali and Sandhya I am eager to hear how it turns out.

Gattina the aroma was heady yes :)

Anita, try adding a little bit of whole wheat flour to it too that is the secret, turns out really soft.

Kalai, yes they taste great with idlis.

2008-04-03T10:35:00.000-04:00

What is it with ragi everywhere?! I made ragi dosas yesterday by adding ragi flour to my very-soured regular-idli batter...but yours look much nicer. Will have to try the secret to the 'hotel style' sambar...

2008-04-03T07:39:00.000-04:00

Linda, I am positive ;) it is the masala paste that gives it its name. I should have added a bit more turmeric powder a brighter better look. You know exactly what to say to make me feel good :)

Divya dosa is made with Wheat,Ragi and old idli batter.

Dee, yup even the bit of ghee makes all the difference.

Revathi, isn't that true? Let me know how close it comes to Saravan Bhavan's when you do make it, my yard stick is Annaporana.

Jayashree, I was a teeny bit concerned but..

Manisha have always done that if I skip the sambhar powder it won't be sambhar to me :) Lucky you! I do have the sambhar powder recipe, just kidding. Here is the link

So you add sambar powder and make your own masala. That's really interesting! I have only done one or the either. Not both. Which sambar powder do you use? If you make your own, please please share your recipe!

2008-04-03T02:13:00.000-04:00

Sambar is always a favourite with me.
You made such a huge quantity of sambar...I would have been worried sick about whether it would come out right or not....
