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. These are bread/buns usually made with tapioca flour, milk, oil, cheese, salt, and egg/egg substitute. Since I don't use eggs in my baking I have used vinegar instead.

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.
