homemade idli podi with whole black uraddal(karuppu ulundhu)
A small hint of any spicy idli podi will always be a pleasing combination for idli or dosa than any other. This time I have tried the homemade idli podi with whole black urad dal or karuppu ulundhu and it really turned out super good. Using this urad dal with its skin has more protein and dietary fibre than using as skinless. Its protein rich and iron rich and these type of lentil consumption becomes mandatory food for all vegetarians. The dals that is to be dry roasted should be done to perfection so that we get nice flavourful tasty podi. Amount of curry leaves is our own wish if we wish we can add more. We can use either black or white sesame seeds ,both are good.Dried red chillies can be added more if you like more spicy. A good mix of gingelly oil and idli podi is the most irresistible combination with hot idli’s. Check my simple idli podi that I have put already in my blog and also garlic idli podi.
