I love organizing, be it at work or home.It saves so much time if you have an organized home or pantry. Also, if you make some basic stocks, pickles, lentil powders it makes life so much easier, if and when you decide to cook. So to kick start my new year, I decided to stock up my pantry with all kinds of “podi”s and “thokku”. Made Parupu podi, thengai podi, karuvepillai podi and tomato thokku. All set for the next few months. Happy 2015 everyone!!!!
Here is the recipe for Parupu podi:
It is one of the easiest to make and it literally takes 10 minutes. Parupu podi with rice and ghee = Bliss!
1. Dry fry 2 cups of toor dhal, red chilli (3) and towards the end add a generous pinch of asafoetida.
2. Let it cool and grind it with salt. Done!
