Today I have came with a very famous recipe of South called as 'Podi/gun powder".
Andhra style paruppu podi/Kandi podi is a spice mix powder or podi which is flavorful and protein-packed. Kandi podi is a classic Andhra recipe made with roasted toor dal (arhar dal/split pigeon peas), chana dal (bengal gram dal/split chickpeas), dry red chili, cumin seeds finely ground to a coarse powder. This can also be called as Andhra style gun powder.
I just loved the garlic version!!! 

Course:All Types
Cuisine: South India
Servings:10 persons

1 small cup tur dal(split pigeon peas)
1 small cup bengal gram/channa dal(Split chickpeas)
1 1/4 tbsps cumin seeds
7-8 dried red chillis (adjust )

  • Heat a heavy bottomed pan and add toor dal (arhar dal/split pigeon peas), chana dal (bengal gram dal/split chickpeas) and dry roast on low to medium.

  • In the same pan put the cumin seeds and  roast them on medium heat for 2minutes(till it splutter).Remove and let it cool.
