Like me; both my kids are fond of having idlli powder as an acompaniment for Idlli & Dosa.It is relatively simple to make & could be customised for individual preference.Also it comes handy while travelling or on a busy morning or like us when you just like to dip in the iddli's into them and savour it.
Black Urad Dhal:1/2 kg
Red dry chillies:10
Black Whole pepper:2tbsp
Rock Sea salt: to taste
Curry leaves: handfull
Heat a large wok.Dry fry individual ingredients and keep aside to cool.I add Asafoetida to the urad after I am done frying it.This is to ensure it doesnot get burnt.After all the ingredients cools off Grind them into a fine powder.I grind the ingredients seperately & then mix them up.This provides me the freedom to adjust the hotness(chilly powder/pepper powder) & ofcourse salt.
Transfer the mixed powder into a dry container.
Take the required amount of the powder & mix it with oil (Gingely / any cooking oil).Serve it with hot idlli's or Dosa's.
Happy cooking !
