    1 . Kuttu Podi

    In South Indian Samayal Kuttu is also one important thing. So when ever we make kuttu, we have to fry the ingredients and grind it with coconut. Then add that in cooked vegetable and dhal. Instead of that, make kuttu podi and keep it in the fridge. When ever you are going to prepare kuttu use this.


    1 cup of Udad dhal
    15 – 20 red chilly
    A small tea spoon of Hing asafoetida
    Desiccated coconut powder ¼ cup

    Grease the pan and put the ingredients with out hing and coconut. Fry them till udad dhal becomes red. Put it in the mixer and grind it. Add hing powder and coconut and mix well.
    Keep it in the fridge. When ever you are going to prepare kuttu, pressure cook vegetable and dhal. Make thadaka and add this kuttu podi in that as per your requirement and mix well. Add salt, coriander leaves and curry leaves. With in one min. you can remove the kuttu from the heat.

    Note: You can use Beans, Carrot, Chow Chow, Pumpkin, Cabbage etc to prepare this kuttu. And you can use Thur dhal or <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City><st1:place>Split</st1:place></st1:City> Moong dal to prepare this.




    2. Dosa Miligal Podi

    We prepare this as a side dish for dosa. You can prepare this and keep for months.

    1 Cup Udad dhal
    1 Cup Channa dhal
    25 – 35 Red chilly
    1 small spoon Hing
    Salt as per your taste

    Fry all the ingredients with out salt and Hing and grind in the mixer.
    Add salt and Hing mix well and use as side dish for dosa and idly.

    Bye rest in next post:wave

    Dear Krishnamma...

    I have noticed the many recipes you have been contributing. They all seem very simple and very practical. I am yet to try them, but feel the ready made podis will come of use to everyone. We IL'ites are already terribly spoilt with the yummy recipes of Chitvish. But cookery knows no limits and boundaries. The more the variety, the better. Thanks for sharing your recipes and tips with all of us so lovingly. Keep them coming!

    L, Kamla

    Bisibela Bath Powder

    You can prepare this to make Bisibela Bath quick and easily. To prepare Bisibela, Put rice, dal and cut vegetables in the cooker and pressure cook them. Make tamarind water or use Tamarind Paste as per my recipe. In a big pan pour oil and fry onions and pour 1 -2 glasses of water and add tamarind paste or pour tamarind water. When it reaches boiling point add this BISIBELA POWDER and salt. Bring it to a boil. Now transfer the cooked rice, dal and veg. mixture in this. Mix well and again bring it to a boil. Remove from the fire and serve hot with potato chips or fried pappad.

    Note: To make this more easier, you can add tamarind paste or tamarind water while you keep rice, dal and veg. to cook in the cooker. So all of them will cook in tamarind water or paste so that it will save time. After removing the cooked rice mixture from the cooker, keep it aside. Pour oil in a big pan and fry onions and then add the cooked rice dal & veg. mixture in that. Add BISIBELA BATH POWDER and salt in that and mix well. Remove it from the fire and serve hot.
