kandi podi/gun powder(Andhra style)

An awesome  mouth watering accompaniment to rice with a drizzle of ghee.courtesy my wonderful mom (ofcourse).The best of kandi podi  i have ever eaten is  what my mom makes because she always says that the best podi comes out only when the quantity of dals taken  is equal and the way the dals are roasted is perfect.Lets  check out!!


1 cup of channa dal
1 cup of toor dal
1 cup of moong dal
1 cup of urad dal
11/2 tsp of cumin seeds
Asafoetida(hing/inguva)-1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder 2 tsp
Salt to taste


Take a pan and dry roast all the dals one after another,Eash dals take different time to get roasted(for instance toor dal takes more time compared to moong dal or chana dal takes more time compared to urad dal).
so better to dry roast seperately.
 Keep them aside to cool.Add the cumin seeds and hing( inguva) at the end. Then dry grind them adding salt. It should be a very fine powder. 

 The great tasting and great smelling powder is ready.
 Eat it with hot rice and drizzle of ghee
