  • Description: Garlic podi recipe, poondu podi, an aromatic South Indian spice powder| podi made using chana dal, urad dal, red chili and garlic.
     Channa dal  1/3 cup
     Red chili    7-8
     Urad dal  1/3 cup
     Garlic  10-12 cloves
     Salt  as needed 
     Oil  2 tsp

Method  :

  • In a pan dry roast the urad dal and chana dal till it becomes golden brown. 
  • Be careful no to get it burnt. 
  • Take it out and add the red chilis.
  • Roast till they becomes crisp and not change the color.
  • I used 5 kashmiri chilis and the few spicy red chili.
  • Take it out and keep aside.
  • Chop the garlic into small pieces. 
  • In a pan add oil and roast the garlic pieces till it becomes golden brown.
  • Roast in a medium low flame. 
  • Once it is done, leave it in the pan and switch off the flame. 
  • Allow all the ingredients to cool completely.
  • Even let it sit for 30 minutes too.
  • Sometimes the inside of the roasted garlic may be hot and it will ooze out water while grinding.
  • So once it is cool completely, add salt and grind this into a fine powder.
  • Store this in an air tight dry container.
  • You can mix this with hot rice and ghee or serve it with idli |dosa too.
Notes:

  1. You can roast few curry leaves while roasting the dals. This gives a nice aroma to the garlic podi.
  2. Garlic podi has a strong smell of garlic, if you want you can lessen 1-2 cloves.
