Idli Milagu Podi | Chutney Powder for Idlis

Idli Milagu Podi is a quick and simple recipe which you can prepare ahead and can be stored over a month.This is a handy chutney powder that hardly takes a preparation of ten minutes and can be mixed with sesame oil to enjoy with idlis.I prepared this long back with tuvar/toor dal (recipe from one of the websites)but we didn't like the taste much.However, when one of my friend,Jayanthi served us idlis with this milagu podi and payasam on the occasion of Golu on our visit to her home.I was just hooked by the taste so much that I requested her for the recipe.She was grateful to send me the recipe and the total credits of the recipe goes to her.

Try making this healthy podi at home and mix it with a dash of gingelly oil,Enjoy !!!

chana dal 1/2 cup
urad dal 1/2 cup
dry red chillies 15-20
asafoetida/hing powder /kayam podi1/4 tsp
curry leaves a sprig
salt to taste

-Heat a pan.Fry the urad dal and chana dal until golden brown on low medium flame.Keep stirring so that the dal don't get burn and then keep aside.(add a tsp of oil or leave )
-Fry the red dry chillies with a little salt(to reduce the smell).Add in the asafoetida ,sprig of curry leaves.Add salt as per taste.

-Grind all together coarsely and store in a airtight container.
-Mix it with sesame oil(gingelly oil ) whenever required to a small batch and the idli milagu podi is ready to serve !!!

Servings~ 1 small bottle

* You can omit the curry leaves if you wish.
* I added 18 red dry chillies which gave a moderately spicy podi.Add as per your spice level.
* You should add gingelly oil to get  the exact flavor.
