Here is another wonderful podi (powder) recipe from my very good friend Raji (Thanks Raji). She made it once and brought it for me and I loved it so much that I asked her to make it again and this time when she brought it for me, I asked her for recipe as well (don't tell her, I will keep asking her to make it for me....lol)
This is a multi-purpose podi for me :)
Pappula Podi (Peanuts and Split Chickpeas Powder)
Bhuni Moongfali (Roasted Peanuts - Skinned) - 1/4 cup
Bhuni Chana Dal (Roasted Split Chickpeas) - 1 cup
Sookha Nariyal (Dry Coconut) - 2 tbsp
Lahsan (Garlic Pods) - 6 to 7
Lal Mirch (Whole Red Chillies) - 8 (add more per your taste)
Dhaniya Patti (Cilantro) - 2 tbsps (or increase if you like the flavor more)
Meetha Neem (Curry Leaves) - few sprigs or as per taste
Salt - as per taste
Ghee (Clarified Butter or oil) - 1 tbsp
- Fry everything except moongfali and chana dal in little ghee till they are nice golden brown and aromatic.
- Cool and grind all the ingredients (including moongfali and chana dal) by adding salt.
As I mentioned above, this is multi-purpose podi. It can be eaten with dosa/idli, served over warm rice with ghee or even can be used as a masala powder when you are cooking some veggie stir fries. So, use your imagination and serve it :)
