Preparation of Iyengar milagu kuzhambu instant mix.

The first step while preparing any instant mix would be to clean, wash and dry all the ingredients thoroughly. Then with very minimum oil roast all the ingredients till they turn light brown. Roasting the tamarind to get the right texture so that it grinds without much issue is an art. Roast it in slow heat till it turns a little hard. Cool all the roasted ingredients completely. Grind it into a fine powder and store it in airtight container.
