Garlic Podi

Garlic Podi...

                           I learn it from one of my neighbor, they usually use it as idly podi or instant rice mix podi along with ghee...but as soon as i heard tis recipe from my neighbor i thought of  using it in my curries n in my chettinad recipes too......soon i'll try 2 post the recipes using garlic powder...it is very easy 2 make with only four ingredients in hand....n now here the procedure goes.....



Ingredients:

Dry Coconut - 1/2 .
Dry chillies - 7-8.
Garlic - 8-9 pods ( peeled).
Roasted Gram / Pottu kadalai - 1/3 cup.
Salt - to taste.

Method:

=> Dice the dry coconut n grind it till coarse powder.

=> Now  without oil ,slightly stir fry  coconut powder for 5-6 seconds , remove from pan n set it aside ( stir frying  too much spoils the final product ).

=> Without oil  slightly stir fry roasted gram / pottu kadalai for 10 seconds, remove from pan n set it aside. ( not more than 10 sec)

=> In the same way Slightly Stir fry red chillies without oil for 4 sec.

=> Grind red chillies, roasted gram/ pottu kadalai, raw garlic together till coarse powder.

=> Combine the coconut powder along with the above mix powder, salt  n grind it just 2 mix all the ingredients.......

Note: Refrigerate it in a air-tight container for further use. since dry coconut is used, it has a long life but since raw garlic is used, i recommend to refrigerate....let's double preserve it ;-)...


     Chettinad Pirattel  made delicious by adding a tsp of garlic powder to it....click on the pic to read the recipe of chettinad pirattel..



That's it.....Garlic Powder is ready 2 serve with idly or as a ready mix for steam rice......

Some times I just like to eat steamed rice with only paruppu podi and this is a nice variation to the podi with garlic.

I do it as well, but minus garlic and coconut instead I use curry leaves for more flavour.
