Pappula Podi (Peanuts and Split Chickpeas Powder) - From my friend Raji

Hello friends,

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

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 :)
