Fresh Idli/Dosai (Milagai) Podi with Sesame seeds
Home made Fresh Milagi podi is what my hubby asks for. But when he likes no more than a week old, I will have to prepare fresh every week !!! I bet , it tastes much better than the store bought ones. No wonder when sesame seeds are added, are good for your health and tasty too.
I prefer Black Sesame Seeds When compared to White. But its your wish at the end.
Here is the recipe
Ellu/Sesame Seeds - 1/4 cup
Urad Dal- 1/4 Cup
Channa Dal- 1/4 Cup
Long Red Chillies- 4-6 ( Depends on your taste)
Asafoetida/Hing - 1 tsp
1) Take the sesame seeds/Ellu, rinse under water. In a kadai , just put the seeds. You will start seeing it splutter and wait till it stops. Until then, dont go anywhere!Keep it aside.
2) In same kadai with little bit oil, add Channa Dal, Urad Dal and Long Red Chillies and fry till golden color.Once it gets cool down , put it in the blender separately.
And at last just mix it in the same blender to get smooth powder. Add, Hing and Salt while blending it.Ta Da...Your podi is ready to be served as side dish for Idly or Dosai.
