Oats Poondu Paruppu podi | Garlic flavored Oats - Lentil Spice Mix

I love oats and spice mixes.Many a times I have combined these two. Today I have added another healthy ingredient - Garlic.So here is a flavorful spice mix with garlic, letils and oats that is awesome with steamed rice.

I used:

Quick cooking oats - 1/4 cup

Toor dhal-1 cup
Moong dhal-1/4 cup
Pepper corns-1 teaspoon
Asafoetida powder - a pinch
Red chillies-4 [adjust to taste]
Garlic powder - 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste

  1. Dry roast oats for a few minutes on low flame till light brown.Keep aside. 
  2. Dry roast the other  ingredients except salt and garlic powder till golden brown in color. Take care as the pepper corns might splutter.
  3. Cool and grind to a fine powder.
  4. Spread it out on a plate for sometime if it gets heated during grinding process.
  5. Add salt,garlic powder, mix well and store in an airtight container.

To serve:

Drizzle a little  sesame oil over piping hot rice,add a few teaspoons of this spice mix. Mix well and enjoy....


You can increase / decrease the amount of garlic powder to suit your taste.
