Homemade Dhaniya Podi/Coriander Powder

Dhaniya Podi is usually added in many dishes in our kitchen. But this podi is quiet different to mix with white rice.

This recipe is from my Mother-in-law who has learnt from her mom.

A very simple and tasty powder. I usually love mixed or podi sadam. Tried for the first time and just loved it and sharing it.

Dhaniya/Coriander Seeds - 1/2 cup
Urad dal - 1/4 cup
Oil - 1 tspn
Dry Red Chilli - 2 nos (As per your taste)
Puli/Tamarind/Imli - a small piece
Peringayam/Asafotida/Hing - 2 pinches
Salt to taste

In a heavy bottom kadai, dry roast dhaniya till its slightly brown/black and transfer it to a plate.
In the same kadai, add 1 tspn of oil, add rest of the ingredients except salt and puli. Saute till its brown.
Now allow it to cool and grind to a coarse powder with salt n tamarind.

Serve with hot rice. You can mix ghee or Nalla Yennai/Gingely oil for yummy taste.

PS - Your feedback is appreciated.

Never added tamarind and urad dal to coriander powder. My mom always makes them for me. I would definitely let her know about your additional ingredients in them.
