Sambhar (Southern Indian Spice Mix)

From my Indian Adventure....AKA Indian Cooking Class at John Micheal Kohler Arts Center!

Heat together in a dry skillet:
1 T dried red chilies (more or less depending on spice preference)
1 t cumin seeds
1/4 t ground fenugreek seeds 
1/4 T ground asafetida (optional)
1 T ground turmeric

Remove from heat and grind in spice grinder (or coffee grinder - as long as it is not a burr grinder)

Heat together in skillet: 
1 T oil (coconut works well)
1 T dry red lentils
1 T dry split chickpeas

Add to spice grinder and process till desired texture.
