This is a 3 in 1 powder which i use for Kuzhambu n Sambar just the measures differ. This recipe is from my Manni and i've been preparing this for past 3 years. Cost of these powders have increased and its better to make them fresh at home.
What you need:
1/4 kg - Dry Red chillies
1/2 kg - Coriander seeds
150 gm - Thoor Dhal
100 gm - Channa Dhal
100 gm - Black peppercorns
50 gm - Fenugreek seeds
50 gm - Cumin seeds 
50 gm - Virali manjal / Turmeric powder
2 tsp - Mustard seeds
1 handful - Curry leaves

How to make:

Keep them in sun for couple of hours. Dry roast them in a kadai until they turn crispier and grind to fine powder.
