Paruppu Podi Andhra Style Kandi Podi

Ingredients needed
   Tur dal - 1 cup
   Fried gram - 1 cup (putanalu pappu)
   Garlic - 2 full pods or (50-70 grams)
   Cumin seeds/jeera - 1 tsp
   Red chillies - 8-10
   Hing - 1/4 tsp
   Curry leaves - few (optional)
   Salt as required
   Oil -1/4 tsp


Dry roast tur dal on medium flame stirring continuously, until it turns golden brown. Add hing, cumin seeds, curry leaves and fry for a few more minutes. Leave it to cool.

Dry roast fried gram (pottukadalai in Tamil) and garlic separately. If you do not like garlic flavor, use less garlic.

Heat 1/4 tsp of oil and fry red chillies. Then grind everything together coarsely with salt needed.

This podi is very delicious with hot steamed rice topped with a tsp of ghee. You just have to prepare any vegetable curry or papads as a side dish for this.

Variation - You can prepare this podi without tur dal also. Use just fried gram and reduce the number of chillies and garlic.
