In generally Fenugreek is added to the Sambar Powder itself but if it is not added to it a separate powder can be prepared to enhance the taste of Sambar, especially those sambars that are made specifically as side dishes. Like Instant Sambar.

How to make (Vendaya) Fenugreek Powder?
Take 1/2 cup of fenugreek or say 50 gms and fry it in dry pan till they turn brown. Care should be taken not to blacken it. Remove from flame and when cold, grind it to a fine powder and store it in an airtight container.

How to use it in Sambar?
After all the procedures of sambar making are over, just before removing from flame, add 1/2 spoon of this fenugreek powder and stir well.
