Salt                                                                      2 tsp(adjust to taste)
1/4 cup                                                                Dried Curry leaves

Method :
Take a tsp of oil in a kadai and place on a slow flame.
All the ingredients have to be roasted uniformly one by one on slow flame only.
First fry asafoetida in oil & transfer to a plate.

Now roast red chillies well with a tsp of oil & transfer on to the plate.

Next fry gram dhal, then urad dhal with oil uniformly till it turns to golden color.
Now roast flax seeds without oil. Keep stirring and when it gives patt patt sound transfer on to the plate.
Dry roast salt also to remove any water present in it.
Allow all roasted ingredients to come to room temperature.


First take salt, red chillies and asafoetida in a mixie jar.
Grind well. If the mixie jar is large enough then add the roasted dhals also. Otherwise transfer the ground powder into a clean dry container.

Then grind the dhals coarsely. If the mixie jar becomes hot while grinding wait for few minutes and then grind. Finally grind the roasted flax seeds.


Now mix all the ground powders well and store in an air tight container.

Note: Skin removed Urad dhal [ black gram ] can also be used for this podi
