Paruppu Podi

Podi means powder in Tamil. This is one of the mixes that can be made and stored. The days when there is no Rasam or Sambar, you can mix this with hot rice and ghee and add a 'sutta aplam' as a side.

You need
Toor Dal 1 cup
Red chillies 2 or 3
Black Pepper 1 Tsp
Hing 1 Tsp
Salt as needed
Roast the dal, chillies, Black Pepper, in a thick bottomed pan, on a medium flame.

Make sure the flame is a steady medium and keep stirring the pan constantly so it doesn't burn.

You should roast this until it changes color. It took about 12 mins for me.

Add the Hing in the last two minutes.

Let cool, and grind to a fine powder.

Mix with hot rice and ghee!
