#2 : Putnala Podi

'Putnalu' in  Telugu translates to the Indian variety of dry roasted Chickpeas . This spice powder has a subtle flavor and is usually eaten with rice and a drizzling of ghee. We all have our favorites. I love sprinkling in over Upma while my Husband likes to add to Yogurt . Putnala Podi also tastes great with Iddli and Dosa .

  • 1 cup Putnalu 
  • 1/2 heaped cup dried coconut powder
  • 12 Red Chillies
  • 2 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • Salt to taste     
  1. Dry grind all the above Ingredients to a  fine powder
  2. Can store in an air tight container for 4-6 weeks
  3. A perfect accompaniment to add to  Rice , Idli , Dosa or Upma
