Ellu Ulundhu Podi


 Making Podi takes very less time only, but the shelf life of this recipe is longer and serves as time saver most of the times.
when we have this podi in hand we feel like having one more side dish is always ready with idly or dosai apart from chutney or sambar .
Ellu podi along with gingelly oil tastes heavenly...we can make podi idly or podi dosai too from this recipe.

Adding a piece of jaggery to this podi while grinding which gives a mild sweetness to this podi.


Ellu / Till seeds - 1 cup
Urud dal - 1/2 cup
Redchilly -  8 to 10 nos.
Garlic - 4 nos
Curry leaves - Handful
Tamarind - small pieace (optional)
Palm Jaggery - small pieace (Or Jaggery)
Salt to taste

Dry roast all the ingredients separately and grind it with salt. Now the Ellu Ulundhu Podi is ready.
