Kulambhu Milagai Podi/Kulambhu Spice Powder

Like sambar powder,kulambhu milgai podi/thool is made in bulk and store it in our households.
Kulambhu milagai thool is a blend of aromatic spices along with whole red chilly and coriander seeds.
This powder can be used to make chicken and mutton curry even in masala kulambhu with veggies or legumes.
The curry doesn't need any extra chilly powder,coriander powder even garam masala powder for extra taste and flavor.At the same time the curry tastes divine with this one simple powder and the curry or kulambhu can be made in a jiffy.
