Curry podi recipe | Iyengar Karamadu podi recipe – Multi purpose curry powder – Recipe with full video and step by step pictures.

Curry podi | Multi purpose curry podi recipe, I used to keep this handy when I was living in Chennai. I use it for making kootu and curry. After that I completely forgot that and make it as and when I need it. I have requested from few readers to post the traditional Iyengar style Karamedu podi. I got this from a friend. He shared the recipe from his mom’s handwritten notebook. It turned out so well and went well with curry, mixed rice too.

The traditional curry podi has 3 main ingredients coriander seeds, red chili and chana dal. In this recipe we have little urad dal, pepper and fenugreek seeds which give more flavor to the curry podi. This is one of the staple podi in most of the Tamil Brahmin houses. Some people add an equal amount of urad dal to make this curry powder.

Trust me, this recipe turned out to be super hit and a flavourful one at our home. I used this for making Kovakkai curry and Capsicum rice.
