karappodi(curry leaf powder)

Thinking about greens last week,I thought about posting Karappodi(curry leaf powder). I love this karappodi and can eat with almost anything. When you are lazy to make any sidedish/chutney for your morning breakfast this comes to your rescue.Just mix with a dollop of ghee or oil and relish with your breakfast.
recipe source: My Mom

prep' time: 15 mins

1/2 cup coriander seeds/dhaniyalu

1 cup chanadal
1 cup urad dal
1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds/methi seeds
8 red chillies (adjust according to taste)
1 key lime sized tamarind
curry leaves(as much as you desire)
i used a fistful of curry leaves
little hing(optional)
oil 2 tsps
salt as per taste


Take a wide pan enough to roast all the ingredients. First,dry roast the curry leaves.Alternately you can microwave in a microwave safe dish for 2 minutes without oil. You can notice the curry leaves looking dried.Now,add 1 tsp oil.add coriander seeds and roast them well untill they look slightly brown in color.Take them out and keep aside.Roast chanadal , uraddal and red chillies individually in the same oil or add oil if required.Let them cool.Grind this into a fine powder along with tamarind using a mixie or a coffee grinder.Add salt.
