Podi / Powders

Paruppu podi

Paruppu podi is a blend of roasted spices and lentils and is full of flavour and aroma. When you are tired of making sambar or rasam, you can mix this powder with the rice and eat. It is also a healthy one. My brother is always fond of this powder. So whenever he comes amma makes this at home. This time its my turn to make this.
