Dhaniya/Malli Podi/Poriyal Podi/Coriander-Lentil Powder

Dhaniya/Malli/Coriander Powder mixed with rice & ghee

This is also called as Paruppu podi, which is rich in protein.  It's particulary good for growing kids.
Ingredients for Dhaniya/Coriander Powder


Dhaniya/Malli/Coriander Seeds – 3 tbsp.

Channa dhal/Kadalai Paruppu/Bengal Gram – 3 tbsp.

Urad dhal/Ulundu/Black gram – 2 tbsp.

Jeera/Seeragam/Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp.

Dried Red Chillies – 10 (use less, if you want less-spicy)

Salt – to taste

Dry roast all the above ingredients, until good flavour emanates from them. Avoid burning; if chillies get warm, it’s enough.

Coriander/Dhaniya/Malli Powder

Grind coarsely in a mixer and store in an air-tight container. 

Final touch:

Kadugu/Mustard seeds - 1 tsp.

Curry leaves - few sprigs

Dry roast mustard seeds and curry leaves (slightly crushed), to garnish. This will give a wonderful flavour and crunchy texture.

 Serve with hot rice and ghee, alternatively you can use to garnish plain vegetable curries.

Coriander Podi!
