BM #121 Week 2 Day 3 - 

Today's recipe from the Tamilian cuisine is a fair adaptation of the classic Andhra delicacy called Kandi Podi. I am yet to post the authentic recipe of Kandi Podi. But I am here with the Tamilian version of Flaxseed Paruppu Podi.

I have added garlic in this recipe as my kids prefer but it is totally optional.

Ingredients - 

Flaxseed 1/4 cup
Toor Dal 1/4 cup
Coconut Powder 1 Tbsp
Peppercorns 1/2 tsp
Red Chilies 3-4 (I used Guntur Chilies)
Garlic 3-4 cloves (Optional)
Salt as needed

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan, dry roast Toor dal, peppercorns, red chilies separately and set aside.

Warm the flaxseeds and set aside. 

After all of them are sufficiently cool, powder all of them adding adequate salt. 

We like a coarser texture to the podi. Also my kids love garlic in podi so I added garlic while grinding.

Transfer into an airtight container and enjoy with rice.
