Idli Milagai Podi Recipe - Version 2 | Homemade Idli Podi | Idli Podi | Chutney Podi for Idli & Dosa

I have posted a recipe of Idli Podi already in this space. That is my mom's recipe and it is made only with Urad dal. I am a great fan of Idli podi and now Happy and Jany joined me. When I feel really tired and lazy to cook, this handy podi helps me. Having Podi Idli with strong filter coffee for breakfast is a pure bliss. Today, I am sharing another interesting and healthy podi which includes sesame seeds and channa dal along with the urad dal. Adding sesame seeds give a nice flavour to the podi. Off to the recipe:

Whole Urad Dal - 1/2 Cup
Channa Dal(Kadalai paruppu) - 1/2 Cup
White Sesame seeds - 1/4 Cup
Dry Red chillies - 15(approximately)
Garlic - 7 to 10 cloves(optional) 
Asafoetida/Hing - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - a handful
Salt - as required
Oil - 1 tsp
1. Dry roast the white sesame seeds until it turns light brown, remove and keep it aside. In the same pan, add 1/2 tsp of oil and roast the urad dal, channa dal and garlic until they turn golden brown. Remove and keep it aside.
2. Again add 1/2 tsp oil and roast the dry red chilli and curry leaves. Along with this add the asafoetida and switch off the flame. Allow everything to cool completely.
3. First, grind the roasted dry red chilli and curry leaves to a fine powder. Along with this add the sesame seeds, channal dal, garlic and urad dal, grind it coarsely.
4. Finally, add the required salt and grind it once. Spread it on a plate and allow it to cool completely.
Store it in the airtight container and serve it with Idli/dosa along with sesame oil/gingelly oil.
Points to remember:
  • Adjust the red chillies as per your preference. The mentioned quantity is just right for us and it is moderately hot.
  • Adding garlic is purely optional and I prefer to add it.
  • The entire process should be done in medium flame. Take care not to burn anything.
  • Grinding it coarsely gives a nice texture to the podi.
Warm Regards,
