Devoid of onion and garlic and prepared with satvik ingredients, Mishry savored the flavors of Double Horse Brahmin Sambar powder.

Our Review Factors
When reviewing Double Horse Brahmin Sambar Powder, we were looking for the right balance of spices that hits the nose and palate and an ingredient list that does not use onions/garlic.
Hing, curry leaves, chilli, coriander, and a favorable balance of other essential spices- that’s how a pot of sambar brewing should smell like. Did this ready-to-use mix lend the inviting aroma we were looking for?
Spice kick laced with a subtle sweetness, a slight pungency, and overall seasoning. Is this powder all convenience, no flavor?
3. Main Ingredients
We scanned the ingredient list to find out whether or not this is truly devoid of onion and garlic. Moreover, does it use natural spices or artificial flavors? Are the spices roasted or raw?

How we tested
Soaked arhar dal was cooked with some salt. In another pot, we cooked some veggies and added them to the dal. This mix was simmered for a few minutes before we added a tablespoon of Double Horse Brahmin Sambar powder to this. No tempering was added as our aim was to gauge the flavor of the powder.
Aroma & Flavor
In terms of aroma, asafoetida was the most prominent. However, once cooked, the sambar showcased the authentic aroma its known for. Brahmin sambar powder, unlike regular sambar powder, has a mustard yellow appearance. Double Horse’s matched this. Thumbs up.
It had a pretty good flavor profile. Like aroma, the boldest ingredient flavor-wise was asafoetida. With a pleasing pungency of hing, this had balanced spiciness.
- This is priced economically.
- It is prepared with ingredients that are typically used in Brahmin sambar powder.
- The appearance and aroma are authentic.
- The flavor was too good.
Following a Jain/Satwik diet? Need a flavorful but quick fix for some sambar? We’d recommend trying Double Horse Brahmin Sambar powder for the exceptional aroma and flavors.
