This powder of roasted curry leaves, dals and spices, transforms a simple breakfast of idli or dosa into a tongue-tickler!
Serve it mixed with til oil, or sprinkle it over idli, dosa or even upma . Do not forget to add the tamarind, as that mild tang is necessary to enhance the flavour of the Karivepilai Podi. If you like your spice powder very hot, you can skip the jaggery.
- Heat a small kadhai, add the curry leaves and sauté on a slow flame for 3 to 4 minutes, while stirring continuously. Remove and keep aside.
- Heat the oil in the same pan, add the coriander seeds, chana dal, urad dal, peppercorns, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, sesame seeds, red chillies and coconut, mix well and sauté on a slow flame for 5 minutes, while stirring continuously.
- When cool, add the curry leaves, tamarind, jaggery and salt and blend in a mixer to a fine powder.
- Store in an air-tight container and use as required.
