Curry Podi/Powder!!!

As one of my blog reader has asked me for the recipes of podis. Am sharing the recipes.

Curry Podi/Powder is a very handy homemade masala powder. This can be used for any vegetable curry's. Its very flavourful. I make in small quantities and use it. This recipe is from my mother in law.

Dhaniya/Coriander seeds - 1 cup
Kadala Paruppu /Channa Dal- 1/2 cup
Dry Red Chilli - 1/2 cup or 10nos(As per your spice level increase or decrease)
Peringayam/Asafotida -  a small piece or 1/4tspn

Preparation Method
Dry roast all the ingredients one by one with a 1/2 tspn oil till its slightly brown.
Cool and grind it to a coarse powder.

Store it in an air tight container and for later use.

Notes - You can dry roast without oil for long use and if you are preparing in large quantity.

This multipurpose podi can be used in rice, sundal and curries.
