Kharada Pudi / ಖಾರದ ಪುಡಿ

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

This is a kind of side dish which goes well with Dosa or Rotis. A spoonful of powder mixed with few drops of oil will be a nice combination. Normally, there will be a stock of these kind of powders in all the houses of Malnad Region, who would like to eat Dosas for their breakfast daily!
Picks has not come out well this time.. Color of the powder looks very dull here :( Let me upload a new pick for this recipe sometime later.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Dried red chillies 10 - 12 (You can use the red chilli powder also)
Split Bengal Gram - 1 small cup
Urad dal - 1/2 cup
Coriander seeds - 1/2 cup
Cloves - 5
Cumin seeds - 1 spoon
Mustard seeds - 1/4 spoon
A big pinch of turmeric
Curry leaves 15 - 20
Amchur powder - 1/2 spoon

Dry roast all the ingredients except salt and amchur powder.

Grind all the ingredients including salt and amchur powder into fine powder and store it in an airtight container.
While using, take around a spoonful of powder, add few drops of oil and mix well.
You can modify the measurements to get a different taste next time.
