ShareThe chutney Podi is an ideal substitute for the chutney that is made for Idly and Dosa.Its perfect for the busy mornings when there is no time to make chutney.
Try this once and you will never think of buying from the store again....

The powder is usually mixed with  gingely oil (sesame oil) and served with idli, dosa etc. I even eat this with chapathi , poori and even spread it on sandwitches .It can also mixed with cooked rice and a little ghee.It's heavenly!


  • Chana dal(gram dal)-1cup
  • Urad dal-1 cup
  • Red chillies-15nos\
  • Mustard seeds-1/2tsp
  • Curry leaves-2 sprigs
  • Salt-to taste
  • Asofetida(hing)-2 pinches
Dry roast all the ingredients except salt and hing in a heavy bottomed plan on low flame for about 10mins or till a beautiful roasted aroma arises.

Cool and add hing and salt.Grind altogether to a fine powder and store in an air tight container.
This can be used for months and remains as fresh.
Option:Sprinke the powder over the dosa while cooking and makes a plain dosa so very interesting.
The perfect trio-Dosa,chutney and Chutney podi.
