My family always loves the Andhra thaali meals in a particular restaurant, and we are in love with the paruppu podi they serve there. Since we frequent this restaurant, waiters have become friendly with us, so, I could manage to get their secret recipe. I had it written in my diary, and though I have made it several times, now for the purpose of my blog, for the purpose of sharing this recipe with you all, I made it once again.........
Recipe is given for a very small quantity..may be, 200 gms..that's all...we can make it freshly every week also. It is so easy.
Please check my other pickles-preserves and podis
I want you all to check my Angaya podi recipe, because it is such a healthy one.

Pottukadalai/fried gram dhal - 1/2 cup
White sesame seeds - 2 tbsp
Broken urad dhal - 2 tbsp
Channa dhal - 1 tbsp
Hing powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 3/4 tsp or more according to your taste
Salt to taste

Recipe Cuisine: South Indian; Category: Preserve/lunch/dinner
Prep time: 5 mts; Cooking time: 10-12 mts

Yields about 200 gms of podi

First dry roast the sesame seeds, till they turn golden in color and splutter

First, put  chilli powder, hing powder and salt to taste in the blender jar

To this, add the roasted sesame seeds

Now, roast the urad and channa dhals

and add them too

Now roast the pottukadalai till it becomes golden and a nice flavor comes out, add this also to the blender, and..

allow to cool for awhile, and powder

Serve this tasty and easy podi with hot rice...not forgetting to add the desi ghee with all its goodness!!!

* A couple of teaspoons of copra(dried coconut) can also be rosted and added, but this certainly reduces the shelf life of the Paruppu podi.
