How to make paruppu podi - Recipe for south-indian paruppu podi

Sometimes it is always boring to eat rice with traditional sambar or rasam. Instead we can try eating rice by mixing with parrupu podi and ghee. If you have fried vegetables along with this combination, nothing can beat it.


1 cup = 100 grams

1. Toor dal - 1 cup
2. Fried bengal gram (potu kadalai) - 1 cup
3. Red chillies - 12 count
4. Black pepper - 1 tsp
5. Garlic - 10 to 12 cloves
6. Salt to taste
7. Asafoedita powder - 1 tsp
8. Curry leaves - few (optional)

Method of preparation:

1. Roast the toor dal and black pepper together in a medium flame until it gets into golden color. Then add the curry leaves and fry it for a min and cool it.
2. Roast the fried bengal gram(potu kadalai) for 2 to 3 mins in a medium flame and keep it aside.(cool it).
3. Add few drops of oil in a pan and fry the red chillies and garlic for a min and then cool it.
4. In a mixi bowl add garlic, red chillies, asafodita powder, salt. Grind for 2 mins and then add toor dal and fried bengal gram. Grind it coarsely, that's it  delicious parrupu rodi ready. Store it in a air tight container.

Serve this podi with hot steamed white rice and warm ghee.
