Curry Leaves Podi

Podi s lend a helping hand when we run out of time or just wanna laze around without indulging in an elaborate cooking. Curry Leaves Podi or Karuveppilai podi, can be seen in almost every house hold. Its a very easy way to include curry leaves in food , which is otherwise normally used only as a flavouring agent and not consumed along with other dishes. My grandmother made me eat curry leaves saying that it will enhance the growth of hair.

Curry Leaves - 2 cups ( washed and dried )
Urad Dal - 1 cup
Red Chillies - 10 nos
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 teaspoons .
Asafoetida to taste

Heat a little oil in a wok and saute the curry leaves under low flame. Keep it aside to cool. Saute the Urad dal followed by Red chillies. Allow the ingredients to cool. When they are cooled down, blend all the ingredients in a blender to form a coarse powder. Transfer in a air tight container and have it with hot rice along with clarified ghee or with dosa. This podi can be stored upto one weeks time.
