Paruppu podi / Papula Podi (In Telugu)

Paruppu podi is my favourite dish prepared by my mom. I used to have this with the plain rice and gingerlly oil. There are many way of making paruppu podi this is my moms way of making and i like to share this version with all.

2cup Toor dhal
1cup Channa dhal
½ cup Moong dhal
½ cup Urad dhal
10 no Red chilli (whole)
1 tbsp Pepper (whole)
6clove Garlic (optional)
salt to taste
Heat a tsp of oil and roast all the ingredients separately in a frying pan including salt..
Cool it and powder it in mixie and sieve well. And put the coarse powder in mixie again and sieve it again. Continue this till coarse powder to fine powder. Blend well with hands and preserve in dry air tight container.

Normally this powder is mixed with plain rice along with melted ghee or gingerly oil. This powder is mostly popular in Andhra and Tamilnadu. Garlic is optional cos many people do not like the taste of the powder with garlic.
