How to make karuvepilai podi / How to make spicy curry leaves powder / Recipe for curry leaves powder

My mom used to make this podi very often as we are having curry leaves tree in our backyard. This is also good for health.

Ingredients:

1. Curry leaves - 2 cups (tightly packed)
2. Urad dal - 1/4 cup
3. Bengal gram(channa dal or kadalai paruppu) - 1/8 cup
4. Red chillies - 10 nos
5. Asafodita powder - 1 tsp
6. Salt as per your taste
7. Black pepper - 1 tsp

Method of preparation:

  1. Dry roast the curry leaves and keep it aside. ( you can do with microwave or using the non-stick pan)
  2. Dry roast the urad dal, bengal gram, red chillies, black pepper together until the dal turns into golden color. Once it is done transfer this into plate and cool it.
  3. Add red chillies and curry leaves into mixi bowl and grind it for few mins and add dal,asafoedita and salt.
  4. Grind it all together into a coarse powder. (do not grind like a fine powder).
  5. That's it curry leaves powder is ready. Transfer this into air tight container.

We can use this powder for idly, dosa and also rice too with ghee or seasame oil.
