We entered the brand new year,also I joined the Blogging Marathon after a short break.We are entering the 60th edition and for this week I chose to share Regional recipes.
When I was going through my cook books to choose some recipes for the theme,this powder caught my attention.So decided to share some Andhra recipes which I noted down from a good friend of mine,long time back.Her mom is an amazing cook and cooks for a large crowd in no time.When she was here I noted down some of her signature recipes such as spicy pickle and powders.
Andhra cuisine is famous for its pickles and powders also she introduced me this nall karam podi.This powder can be mixed with rice and eaten,also be used as an accompaniment for idly and dosa,topped with sesame oil or ghee like idly podi.
The taste of this powder is entirely different from the regular idly podi.As this podi uses tamarind and coriander seeds curry leaves,it has got a very nice tangy taste and flavor.Off to the recipe............................
- Roast the ingredients in a medium flame.
- The amount of curry leaves can be increased according to personal preference.
- The powder needs to be in a bit coarser side,so grind it accordingly.
