Idli Milagai Podi



Idli milagai podi is a delicious lentil powder that is a staple in Tamil nadu homes. It is served with idlis / dosas, generously doused with melted ghee. This is my Day 4 post of BM#15 under "accompaniment" theme.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup urad dal / skinned black gram
1/4 cup chana dal
2 tsp sesame seeds
12 red dried chillies
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp oil
A generous pinch of asafoetida

Method:
Dry roast dals individually until they start to change color.
Toast sesame seeds until they start to pop.
Toast chillies for a few seconds and turn off the stove.
Heat oil and add asafoetida. Turn off the stove. Let cool all the ingredients.
Grind them all together finely and store it in an airtight container.

No matter how many chutneys and sambar I make for idli/dosa I always would want idli podi as one of the accompaniment. To top it off I would love to have hot coffee after eating spicy idli podi and idli combo. OOh....just love it.

Idli podi is my favourite. comes in handy when there is no time for grinding chutney.
