Chutney powders such as this Curry Leaves Chutney Powder, made with spices, daria and curry leaves, really come in handy on days when you do not have time to prepare chutney or sambhar to accompany your idlis and dosas.

You can serve the chutney powder as it is, or mix it with til oil, to make a tongue-tickling and aromatic accompaniment! Not only that, the chutney powder also comes in handy when you want to transform your idli or dosa into a dry, one-meal snack to carry to work, school or on a journey.

You just need to coat your cooked idlis with til oil mixed with curry leaves chutney powder, or sprinkle some powder on the semi-cooked dosa before turning it around, to make a self-sufficient snack!

Curry leaves with dry kopra and daria dal imparts a wonderful flavor, sesame seeds, tamrind pulp and red chillies enhance it.......great as an accompaniment with dhoklas also.
