Paruppu Podi

Paruppu podi
Podis and Thokkus come real handy on days when we don't feel like cooking.We usually stock our kitchen with at least a few of them.Just these powders with rice and a spoon of Ghee can taste yum !

Dhalia - 1cup
Copra or dry roasted coconut scrapings - 1/4 cup ( can use desiccated coconut too)
Whole Red Chilli - 8
Garlic - 5 big pods
Curry leaves - a sprig
Mustard - 1 tsp
Oil - 4 tsp
Salt - as needed

Method :
-In a pan add 1 tsp of oil and fry the Whole red chilies on low heat until they puff up and are well browned, remove from pan.
-To the same pan add another tsp of oil, fry the Garlic and remove.
-Again add 2 tsps of oil to the pan and splutter the mustard and the curry leaves.
-In a blender grind the Whole red chilies,salt and Dhalia finely.Then add the coconut and garlic and pulse again.
-Now mix the tempering into the powder or you can add it to the blender and pulse along with the mixture.
-It's done !
