Milagai Podi is also fondly called ‘gun powder’, which makes it obvious just how fiery it tastes! The spiciness of red chillies combined with the aroma and rich taste of roasted dals and asafoetida makes this South Indian spice powder a really tongue tickling treat.

Milagai Podi is mixed with til oil or ghee and enjoyed like a chutney with idli and dosa . It can also be sprinkled on Uttapa to give it a special taste and hue.

While making Milagai Podi, make sure you roast the ingredients separately as mentioned in the recipe, to ensure uniform roasting without charring.

You can store this powder in an air-tight jar for a month or even more, and serve it as and when required.

I used the same measurements as mentioned above but the color didn''t turn out like the picture.. So I added 2 tsp of red chilli powder and got the exact color... I love using this powder on dosa aswell... Tastes delicious

Tarla Dalal    Hi Bhumika, Great to know you have liked the recipe.. the colour of the powder will depend on the kashmiri chillies being used.. Adding of chilli powder, may make it spicier in taste. Do keep trying more recipes and give us your feedback.

Please correct the recipe name. Its Milagai podi not malgapodi. Milagai means chilly in tamil.

Too good... loved this recipe... perfect in terms of taste, texture and colour... I followed it exactly and I was surprised that this was better than the store-bought one.
