What a lovely recipe! Give me some hot steamed rice, a bit of ghee and a little of this garlic podi any day, and I’ll be in heaven. 🙂 This is one of our all time favourites at home.

Garlic always add a masth zing to anything added… totally love this podi with some ghee and rice…

I can almost imagine the aroma and taste of this podi. I like that, like me, you make podis in small quantities. I do this too because podis are best eaten fresh.

Fresh batch of podis are such a life saviour ! and these are so flavourful whether with rice or dosa / Idli ! good one…

Podi’s look delicious and healthy with garlic as the main ingredient. I love such podi’s specially when you need that extra kick in your food on the side.

Garlic podi looks so flavourful and delicious. It definitely gives extra flavour and taste to bland dishes. Superb share.

I usually bring podi powder from India.. love it with idli and dosa.. this one looks easy to make and follow. Will definitely try some! Btw what is roasted gram dhal in hindi? I thought gram dhal was same as chana dal but you have that as a separate ingredient.. so wondering which one is this?

    Hi Ashima yeah it’s so easy to make. Gram dhal and channa dhal are same but gram dhal is different from roasted gram dhal. We call roasted gram dhal as pottukadalai in Tamil. When I searched in google it says pottukadalai is called as bhuna channa in Hindi.

Garlic elevates the taste in podis Niranjana. I love to stock 2 varieties in my fridge as they come handy when we are back from travel and the refrigerator is empty. Some Podi, hot rice and ghee is ultimate comfort food. Co-incidence – My Mums nick name is Bagyam too. ha ha!

I love all kinds of podis.. They taste yummm with plain rice and ghee. apart from doasas and idlis.



19th May 2019 at 2:16 PM

As I was reading the ingredients, my mouth was literally watering. I love all sorts of podi masalas. I must admit didn’t know much about them till I got introduced to the variety of podi by my South Indian neighbor. I too keep some in my fridge as it makes a good addition to plain rice, plain paratha.

Andhra is famous for these yummy powders! I love them too! Garlic sounds like a wonderful flavor to add to any podi! Awesome and mouthwatering dear <3 My favorite is to enjoy with dosas and idlis!



20th May 2019 at 11:58 PM

My mom-in-law used to make different varieties of podis at home, but I never made any podi myself! Your garlic podi looks awesome. I should give it a try sometime! 🙂

This sounds an interesting recipe and definitely adding garlic to chutney powers or podi adds flavor to it.I love to have these pods with idlis.

    Nice paarul… This is different from chutney powder. We make paruppu podi Or kalathu podi which is mainly used to mix with rice and a dollop of ghee. And yeah this garlic podi can be used in both the ways as an accompaniment for idli dosai and can be mixed with rice.
