Long Live The Shelf - Paruppu Podi

Paruppu Podi
This is a Podi famous in Andhra , I first tasted it in Amaravathi Restuarant some years back and immediately fell in love with it. My Podi list will be incomplete without Parruppu Podi. Very simple to make and has a heavenly taste when taken with hot steaming rice , with a teaspoon of Ghee and Papad to accompany it .
Toor dal - 1 cup
Bengal gram dal - 1/4 cup
Red Chillies - 10 nos
Curry leaves - a handful
Asafoetida - a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 spoons
Saute the above given in the order of Red chillies,Toor dal , Bengal gram dal, curry leaves. Allow them to cool and grind them in a blender along with salt and asafoetida . Store them in a air tight container and serve with steaming rice , along with little ghee and papad. Your kids will love it
