My Notes :

1. I used coconut oil since i like the flavor. If you don't like you can use any oil.

2. Cook all in low flame else it will get burnt . If its burnt then Kara pori wont be good.

3. Roast garlic well in low flame till the bubbles stops. So that once cool down it will be crunchy. Else it ll be chewy.

4. I did not add the salt since adding the sambar powder. Already salt will be in pori and sambar powder.
