The aromatic paruppu podi!!

Filed under: Recipes/Cooking — Celia Rexselin @ 2:37 pm

Tried out this simple powder that can serve as an accompaniment for rice.


1 cup tuvar dal (thuvaram paruppu)

4-5 red chillies

1/2 teaspoon pepper

salt to taste.

Preparation time – (takes lesser than 5 minutes, believe me!!)


1) Broil (dry fry) pepper and chillies and keep it aside.

2) Broil tuvar dal till it turns golden brown and keep it aside.

3) Grind the ingredients.

4) Add a little salt and mix/grind once more.

5) Its done. Will taste excellent if you have it with rice. You can add either gingelly oil or ghee to the rice.

Let me know how it comes out 🙂
