Idli Milagai Podi #2

This is another version of Milagai podi that Lil Angel loves to have due to the tinge of sweetness in this podi. Mom adds a little jaggery and this changes the taste of this spice mix....

Mom uses:

Channa dal - cup
Urad dal – 1 cup
Sesame seed – ¼ cup
Asafoetida powder
Red chilli -5
Jaggery , powdered – ¼ cup
Oil -2 teaspoons

  1. Dry roast sesame seeds till they splutter and keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and roast red chilli for a minute. Drain and keep side. When you are in this step, be sure to keep the windows open and switch on the exhaust fan.
  3. In the same oil, roast the channa dal and urad dal along with the asafetida.
  4. Cool and powder along with salt and sesame seed.
  5. When the mixture is semi- coarse, add the jaggery and run the mixier in short bursts. You can powder it coarsely or finely, the choice is yours.
  6. Spread out on a plate and store in an air tight container after an hour.
