Annamlo Podi


This Podi/masala literally translates to “Powder that goes with Rice”. Its simple & quick, and tastes good with plain rice, or when mixed with any pickle and rice.


1 cup chana dal
1/2 cup toor dal
2 tsp Urad dal
2 tsp moong dal
8-10 dry red chillies
1 tsp jeera
1 tsp salt


  • Dry roast the dals and red chillies till the dals are a little brown
  • Roast the jeera seperately with a bit of clarified butter (ghee)
  • Once clooed, mix all the ingredients together with salt, and grind.
  • Ensure the resultant podi is not too fine. A bit of coarseness is good.
