This is a simple recipe of putnala podi by my mom,she doesnt put any garlic into it as she doesnt eat garlic.But it tastes good when mixed in hotrice with loottttts of ghee. It hardly takes 5-7 minutes to make it....:)
1 cup of dal(putnalu/dalia/roasted dal)
Red chillies 6 -8 (can be adjusted according to taste )
Salt to taste
In a mixer jar add all the ingredients ( dal,cumin seeds,redchillies and salt )together and just dry grind it into a very smooth powder.
Store it in an airtight container.
It tastes good with hot rice with ghee and it is a very simple preperation).
Try and let me know how it tastes.
