Paruppu podi (Lentil powder)


Paruppu podi with a tsp of ghee is the best combination and perfect to start the lunch. During my busy days, I manage with this powder & rasam with some pappad to go. It taste spicy & quite a healthy one b'coz of the lentils we use.

Simple to make but taste great. I prefer making this paruppu powder homemade rather than buying. Storing them in the air tight container restores it aroma & freshness for the long period.

Ingredients :
  1. Pottu kadalai / Roasted gram - 1 cup
  2. Urad dal - 2 tbsp
  3. Dry coconut - 2 tbsp
  4. Red chilly - 4 nos
  5. Salt
  6. Asafoetida - a pinch

How to cook :

  • Dry roast all the ingredients till light brown in color. Finally add the dry coconut & toss for couple of min. Switch off the heat.
  • Allow the mixture to cool.
  • Grind them to a fine powder.

Serve them with rice & a tbsp of ghee.
