    Gun Powder / Kandi Podi

    I don't know about the above recipe but the actual Gun Powder ( Kandipodi is what we call in telugu) as Kandipappu ( Toovar dal ) is the main ingredient and here it is for all of you.
    Ingredients

    Toovar Dal : 2 Cups
    Moong Dal : 1 Cup
    Channa Dal : 1 Cup
    Red Chilli Powder : 1 Cup
    Hing : 1 Tsp
    Jeera : 2 Tbsp
    Salt : As per taste.

    Method
    1. Dry fry all the dals separately till golden brown in colour.
    2. Add the jeera and hing to the dals when they are hot and keep them aside to cool.
    3. Grind all the ingredients together except salt and red chilli powder to a coarse to fine powder.
    4. Add red chilli powder and salt to the ground mixture and store in an airtight jar.

    · Options: Mix with til oil and steaming hot rice just like that or even can be accompanied by sambar or kadhi which is a good combination
    · Mix this powder with little oil or curd and can be made like chutney to eat along with dosa or idly

    Gun powder

    Dear Prema,
    once I bought paruppu podi from one Andhra lady selling pickles. It was very tasty. i think this paruppu podi you have said must be the same. It was not very dry, it was somewhat slightly oily. But the taste was very good. Anyway I shall try your recipe. Pl. clarify - is channa dal bengal gram dal (kadalai paruppu) or pottukadalai-the one we use for chutney?
    Thank you

    Dear varloo

    I dont understand the tamil names what you were telling me but you have to use the bengal gram dal ( chana dal ) not the chutney chana dal for this recipe. Hope this is clear now.

    Enjoy

    Raw Onion

    Sorry... I forgot to add this bit. You want to enjoy the real taste of this kandi podi, mix this powder in hot rice along with ghee or til oil and eat along with chopped raw onion.

    Hope you enjoy this

    Hi All
    Here am starting a new thread with Andhra dishes. Typical Andhra food is well known for its spices & taste.I wish ladies from Andhra would join me. Any suggestions and corrections are most welcome.

    Gutti Vankaya Kura ( bhara baingan)

    Brinjals- 1/2 kg(medium sized)

    Onions-200gms

    green chillies-4 to 5

    Turmeric- 1/2 tsp

    chilli powder-4 tsp

    corriander powder- 3tsp

    jeera powder-1tsp

    garam masala- 1tsp ( this is optional)

    Bay leaves- 2

    Corriander leave- accordingly

    tamarind pulp- 100gms( according to your required taste )

    salt, oil-200ml

    Firstly you need to slit the brinjals onto four parts and soak them in water containing 1tsp of salt.( salt prevents brinjals turning into blackish in color)

    1. Grind onions & green chillies to a fine paste .
    2. To this grinded paste add turmeric , chillipowder , corriander powder ,jeera powder ,corriander(hara dhaniya) garammasala & salt .
    3. Now stuff this mixture into the slit brinjals properly.
    4. Take a pressure pan add oil , after the oil heats add bayleaves and brinjals one after the other.Let the brinjals fry until the color changes,mean while you can add the remaining paste left and fry it.
    5. when the brinjals are half done add the tamarind paste. you can add little water if required and pressure cook for 3 to 4 whistles.
    You can have this curry along with chapathi or any variety of Rice( white rice , coconut rice).



    Coconut Rice


    This is one of the famous recipe of coastal Andhra.

    Rice- 1kg

    coconuts -3

    cardomoms- 5

    cloves- 8

    cinnamonstick- 2 inch

    Bay leaves-4

    Turmeric- 2tsp

    Oil-100ml

    Ghee- 20ml

    salt- As required.

    For this rice you need to extract milk from the coconuts.You can mix water to the extracted milk to get the proportion.( It is not that only pure coconut milk is used , we can dilute the milk by adding water)

    Soak rice for 30 to 40 min.( If its basmati rice).

    For 1 glass of rice 1 1/2 glass of water is required, i.e; 1: 1 1/2 is the proportion.

    Take a thick bottomed cooking bowl add ghee & oil , let it heat add cloves cardamoms, cinnamon & bayleaves.let them fry for 2 min add turmeric and extracted coconut milk according to the quantity of rice. Add salt and bring it to boil and add rice. when the rice is 3/4th done put on a low flame and cook for another 5 to 10 min.

    Hope you would enjoy these recipes.
