This flavourful Chutney Podi is sure to make you gobble up an extra idli or two! Mixed with til oil, this Chutney Podi makes an exciting accompaniment to hot idlis and dosas. When packing idlis in the lunch box or for a journey, you can coat them with a mixture of Chutney Podi and til oil to make sure they remain moist and soft. Having absorbed all the flavours of the powder, the idlis will taste even better than fresh, hot ones! You can even use this aromatic powder to season upmas and dry subzis to make them more appealing.

I added a little less chillies in this as I do not eat much spicy..I also added a little oil to it and spread it on the dosa and just loved it !!!
