Poondu podi/Chutney powder with Garlic

Ingredients
Channa dal/ Kadalai paruppu -1/4cup
Urad dal/Ulutham paruppu -1/4cup
Garlic/Poondu - one bulb
Red chillies- 8 (adjust to your taste)
Hing/Asafoetida -1/4teaspoon
Jaggery/Vellam- a tiny piece
Salt

Method
Dry roast all the items (except garlic) separately. Take care not to burn any..
Let it cool completely. Add the red chillies-dal into a small jar of a mixer and grind it to a coarse powder. Then add in the salt, jaggery, and hing. Grind again for couple of minutes.
 
Meanwhile, peel and chop the garlic cloves. Now add them with the dals and give it a few pulses.
 
The outcome will be a sticky mass, spread it on a plate and let it dry for 2-3 hours. If you like the chutney powder to have a grainy structure, then you can store it in an airtight container.
Since we like the podi to be on the finer side, I powdered it again.
 
Store the podi in airtight container...
 
..and enjoy it with idli-dosa-oothappam.
