Idli Podi (Version 2)

This is a healthier version of the podi. Podi is a eternal favorite.:) We can eat with even rotis, upma, even sprinkle a little on the Poha would taste yum. 🙂  Hope you try this version and share your feedback.



Here’s the recipe:

Makes 3 cups

1 cup each Chana dal and Udai Dal
1 Cup flax seeds

8 each Bhedgi and normal Red Chillies
Asefodita 1 tsp.
Gingelly Oil: 1 tbsp.

Black Seasame seeds: 2 tbsp

1. Roast the dals,flax seeds and chillies till golden brown in gingelly oil. Roast the red chillies also.
2. Grind all the dals,chillies,asefoditia,til and salt coarsely in a powder.
3. Store in an airtight jar. Would stay fresh for more than a month.
U can add more red chillies if you want it more spicy.
Whenever want to use, use a fresh, clean spoon, add the needed quantity, mix with oil/ghee.
Goes very well with Idlis, Dosas, Adai.




Its one important way of adding flax seeds to your diet. Flax seeds doesn’t change the taste much.



Hi, I am Kavita, the owner of this blog.There are many types of foodies; vegeterian, non vegetarian, eggeterian , so i thought foodies should be called "foodaterian". Hence the name.Like most of you, i too was an amateur cook who didn't know even the basics like how much water to be added to rice?. :) With time i have learned and would like to share and learn the recipes. Hope to get love and support from all you wonderful people. You can reach me at twitter:
