Idli / Dosa milagai podi

Ingredients needed :
  • Dried Red chilies - 1/4 kg (Preferred gundu milagai)
  • Urid dhal - 2 cups
  • Chana dhal - 2 cups
  • Toor dhal - 2 cups
  • Black sesame seeds (Ellu) - 100 gms.
  • Hing powder - little
  • Salt - as reqd. (i use powdered salt )
  • oil - 1 spoon
Method :

Take a big tawa and add ellu and dry fry it till it pops out well , and set aside, now add urid + chana + toor dhal and dry fry well and set aside separately now add one spoon oil and add dried red chilies and fry well allow all ingredients to cool well and then grind it into coarse powder first grind ellu , just in pulse or in 1 grind it...not too much , as it segregates oil out so the milagai podi will get sticky... so grind it just less than a min.and keep it in a bowl then grind dhall coarsely and add it to the ellu powder then grind the dried red chilies and add it to the above two powders now add the salt + hing powder ...if you are using rock salt (Kallu uppu) then grind it along with the dhals. Mix all the above powders well ...and if it is hot allow to cool well and then store it in air tight containers or glass bottles..
    Notes :

    The measurement i gave comes upto 500gms . This is the method my Mother - in -law does.. My mom doesn't add ellu , instead she add little jaggery...Both the methods will be excellent...


      1. I would love to try this one kavitha , would be please give a recipe for making it in a small quantity.
