Paruppu Podi

I always keep idli pedi / Gun powder ready..though chutneys are prepared, my better half loves these podi's. This podi is little different from the one I usually make. This one tastes good with hot rice and ghee as well as idli-dosa too. 

Thoor Dal / Thuvaram paruppu - 1/4cup
Channa Dal / Kadalai paruppu - 1/4cup
Urad Dal / Ulunthu paruppu - 1/2 tablespoon
White Sesame seeds / Ellu - 1/2 tablespoon 
Pepper corn -1/2 teaspoon 
Red chilly -2
Hing/ Perungayam - 1/4teaspoon 

Dry roast the dals one by one until they turn golden in color and nice aroma comes. Do it patiently on low medium heat, taking care not to burn the dals. 

Similarly roast the sesame seeds, pepper corns-red chili and let everything cool down.
Grind them coarsely adding enough salt, hing and 1/2 teaspoon of sugar.
Store it in airtight container. Serve as a side dish with gingelly oil or ghee to idli-dosa-rice.

  1. I too am a big fan of paruppu podi aka pappula podi as we call it in Telugu. My MIL showed me its preparation and since then I prepare this often. Loved the beautiful jar you used preserving Podi.
