Oh! don’t worry I’m not into making bombs now….
what i have today is of the South Indian kind and is almost as potent as its namesake. But fret not,it is easily enjoyed even by the spice -intolerant and you can play around with the quantity of the spice as well as other ingredients.
This accompaniment is a favorite at home. Although it’s a bit spicy, my son loves to have it with crisp dosas and it makes for such a quick breakfast too!
Also called idli podi, paruppu podi, dhal powder or ‘gun powder’, this crunchy spice mixture should be stored in an airtight jar. When required, a spoonful or two may be mixed with melted ghee/oil and used like a chutney.
Roast all these ingredients one by one..and powder. Mix well and store in an air tight container.
