    Salt to taste.
    • Fry red chilies and black pepper slightly. ​
    • Add thur dal to it and fry till reddish. ​
    • Remove from the fire and let it come to the room temperature ​
    • Put this in a dry powder mixer grinder with salt and make it a soft powder. ​

    Paruppu Podi

    1 Cup Thur dal

    10 Garlic pieces
    Salt to taste.

    Prepare Paruppu Powder II as above and don't fry the garlic pieces.
    Put the garlic directly while you put all the other ingredients in the mixer jar.
    Use same as above.

    Note: Instead of garlic pieces you can also use dried curry leaves.
