idli podi also known as idli milagai podi is a spicy powdered chutney served with idlis. The milagai podi is mixed with sesame oil or melted ghee and served with Idlis or dosas.

A quick-fix accompaniment for idlis and dosas, milagai podi is a lip-smacking chutney powder made of roasted urad and red chillies combined with a little sesame for aroma and jaggery to highlight the flavours.

In South Indian homes and restaurants, milagai podi is served irrespective of whether or not there are other accompaniments. Most people like to have at least one idli or dosa with this all-time favourite!

Idlis and dosas are also smeared with milagai podi mixture when they are packed for Indian travel food idlis, dosas. This rules out the need for other accompaniments and also keeps the idli milagai podi moist for a long time. You can vary the amount of red chillies depending on how spicy you like it.

I would like to share some important tips to make the perfect idli milagai podi. 1. To get the best result, ensure the lentils and spices are fresh and clean them for any stones before you start roasting. We have dry-roasted everything, if you like you can use oil for roasting but, it will decrease the shelf life of the milagai podi powder. 2. Many people even add sesame seeds (black or white) to the milagai podi chutney, adding it depends upon you. 3. We have made use of Kashmiri red chillies to make milagai podi , but you can also use pandi chillies or byadagi chillies. Also, the quantity can be increased or decreased depending upon the spice level you can handle. 4. Blend Idli Podi to a slightly coarse powder. Do not grind at a stretch or it will form a lumpy mass. Grind it in intervals to get a nice coarse powder but, if you like fine, then grind till smooth.
