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.
