Pathare Prabhu Sambar Powder

Pathare Prabhu Sambar Powder is the special secret spice blend used by the Pathare Prabhu community in their cuisine.

Pathare Prabhu is one of the Hindu communities in the city of Mumbai. Members of this community are one of the original settlers in Mumbai, migrated from Gujarat (Saurashtra) during the 13th century. They have their own traditional recipes and one of them is their version of Sambar Powder. (from WIKI)

One of their popular secret ingredient that’s used across their dishes is their special spice blend. Apart from using it in making this pulao, its used in making curries as well. The Parbhis (a short name for Pathare Prabhus) have their own home-made magic ingredient which is used for most of their dishes. This ingredient is their community special masala – in this case, it is the famous Pathare Prabhu ‘parabhi sambar’ masala.

We did Biryani/Pulao/Khichdi Festival during this April Mega BM and I did AtoZ Biryani/Pulao/Khichdi in Spice your Life! and Quick 30 mins One pot meal in AtoZ order in this space. For W, I had to resort to a new dish as the planned dish failed, I asked Vaishali and she shared this Watanyachi Khichadi or Pathare Prabhu Peas Pulao, using this special spice blend.

We are starting the BM#101, Week 2 with Condiments as my theme here.

  1. One of my friends uses this masala for Bombay mutton sukha and I made it once, at home. I think I still have some of the masala. I don’t remember how I made it though. I should use it up for the khichdi you posted for the meg aBM.

  2. I was waiting for this recipe and it sounds very flavorful. The addition of wheat kernels sound new in a sambhar powder. I guess it’s like some people using rice grains in the south Indian version sambhar powder.

  3. Long back I read about this masala.. Wheat in masala powder is quite interesting. It’s good that you have it on your blog now.bookmarked it.
