By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Monday, November 30, 2009

Me and My Son are going to india, for one month, yipee!!!!!  My much awaited vacation!!! But poor hubby, though he can manage well in the kitchen, i m doing my best to make his work easier.

Paruppu podi/Mixed Lentil powder comes handy in these times.

Tuvar daal/pigeon pea - 1 cup
Kadalai paruppu/Gram dal/Chana dal - 3/4 cup
Black Pepper/Milagu - 3 tbsp
Round Red Chillie - 15-20 nos.
Dry Ginger Powder - 1.5 tbsp
Curry Leaves - one tight fist
Hing - 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Dry Roast Tuvar dal, Gram Dal , curry leaves and Red Chillies separately. Grind the roasted ingredients and the rest together to a fine powder. Store in a Air Tight Container.

Tastes Great with Hot Rice and Ghee.
