Dosha/Dosa Podi | Idly/Idli Podi

Ground lentils with red chilly & pepper corns

It's been almost two weeks since the 'podi' I got from India has been over. I have to tell you it's been a great relief for me not to make side dishes for morning breakfasts during weekdays. Primary thing is I wake up just in nick of time and I will be racking my brain for ideas. And I don't get any !!! So when this podi got over, I was at a loss. So that's when I got the recipe from my Mil and decided to make it. So here's a side dish with a punch for your busy weekday mornings. You can make this over a weekend and store it over for over two months, if it lasts that long ;)

Recipe Source : Mil

I took : 20 minutes

I Used:

Urd Dal            -  1 cup
Channa Dal       -  ½ cup
Red Chilly        -  15-20 nos                                         
Pepper Corns   -  2 tsp
Curry leaves    -  10 sprigs
Asafoetida       -  ¼ tsp
Salt                 -  As needed

The Way:

Dry roast all the ingredients separately and allow them to cool. Coarse grind them together and yo-ho !! Dosha podi is ready to be served with oil for steaming idlys or doshas :-)



  1. Never made podi in my life, all i do is buy buy and buy :-), such a lazy goose I'm.
    I observed something today, I have seen all your veggie recipes and learnt those recipes that I don't know of, also tried quite a few of your recipes which came out very well.
    Now the ball is in your court Ma'm, please cook some veggie recipes :)
    Also some "No Cooking Recipes" too!!

    1. Sure mam.. The thing is I enjoy making non veg more than veg.. So somehow it doesnt make into the blog too.. But now that u have passed on the ball to me, I will add more of veg & no cook recipes soon :)


Thank you for stopping by !! I am really happy that you take time to let me know how you feel :-)
