Eggless Brazilian Cheese Bread

Pao de Queijo (pronounced as pown -deh- kay-zho) aka Brazilian Cheese Bread is a small baked cheese bun, a popular snack and breakfast food that originated in the state Minas Gerais of Brazil.

So here I am sharing the Sambar powder that is used to make a typical Huli. This is so unique and different from South Karnataka Sambar powders. The main difference being the omission of urad dal and Tur dal. This powder is just made with dried spices. This can be made in advance in large quantities/batches and stored in a
