Idli Milagai Podi - Idli Podi Recipe(Spiced Chutney Powder)

Idli Milagai Podi
Idli Milagai podi / Kara Podi(Idli Podi) is my fav and can have it even daily.....Idli podi or podi or thool as we call it, plays a vital role in every south indian homes. Lazy?! no side dish at home, this podi comes to our rescue. I am sure each one has their own version and here is mine.....I have tried different versions of this podi but sticking on to this one since a year.
I am sure everyone is catching up enthiran fever so am I :) But planning to watch it only this month end.....so that we can hear the dialoges and watch the movie peacefully. Am hearing varied reviews of the movie....whatever it is, the only and main powerful element that makes me go to theater to watch the movie is none other than our SUPER STAR Rajinikanth!! Its been a yr since I visted theaters, the last movie I watched onscreen was Abhiyum Nanum. So am excited and thrilled to watch the first movie in theater with mittu :)

Idli Podi Recipe
I luv idlis with the podis spread on it like the above. If you give an hr or so it tastes so good!! I have tasted MTR, sakthi masala and aachis idly podi but all that was till I tried it on my own. I saw the ingredients on each of them and got my own idea and came out with this flavourful homemade idly milagai podi.
Idli Podi Recipe

My Notes:

  • Garlic can be crushed and added raw then add it while grinding at the final stage.As the flavour of garlic catches up in the podi very well if done this way.I usually roast garlic(reserve 2 raw flakes alone) and add just 2 raw flakes while grinding.
  • The color of the podi purely depends on the chilli variety and the amount of chilli we use.

  22. Ah! so you add coconut in podi!!..nice idea for coconut lovers like me! :)

    Tried the bread masala just now and came out very well!! I generally make kothu paratha, semia and at time noodles and pasta with the same base but never once had i thought of applying it with bread cubes!..My son had wanted me to try badly ever since I showed him the bread masala pic in yours :)
    Thanks a LOT for the simple and practical recipe, sharmi! :)
