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.
