This is one of the amazing podi's I have ever come across. I use it almost on all the fry curries I make and it totally shoots up the taste. This could be added in most of the vegetables that u normally make fry with. This goes well on Brinjal,Ladies finger,Capsicum, Potato,Tindoora, and almost every veggies which suits for frying.
One way of using this is to completely eliminate oil fries and just boil the vegetables and add this podi lavishly and some salt and cook for few mins till the podi blends well with the dish. I bet everyone will love it.
Or can also add this while making fries apart from Red chilli powder. It will taste awesome.
Urad dal - 1 cup
Channa Dal - 1 cup
Groundnuts - 1/2 cup
Dhaniya - 1/2 cup
Cumin - 1 sp
Red Chillis - 1 cup (Whole chillis, not powder)
Tamarind Pulp - 1/2 sp
In a little oil (as used for tempering) fry all the items (except tamarind)well and grind to coarse powder in mixie after it cools down.
No need to add salt to this powder. Salt could be added while making fries/curries.
