Andhra style paruppu podi with garlic / Kandi pappu podi served with hot white rice and ghee is a meal in itself. This is a very simple recipe and can be made at home in under 20 minutes. The lentils, garlic and spices are roasted and ground to a powder. We like the podi ground fine at home. If you like a coarse texture, set aside a tablespoon of the lentil mixture before grinding. Grind the rest of the mixture to a fine powder and add back the lentil mixture and pulse a few times so the lentils added retain its coarse texture. Adjust the spice levels according to your taste. I add a few Byadagi / Kashmiri chillies for colour along with the regular Gundu chillies. The garlic is used in this recipe along with the skin. The roasted skin gives a fantastic aroma and flavour. If you want a paruppu podi that is deep yellow in colour, omit the curry leaves. Store the podi in a airtight container and use it within a month.

      You can add more garlic if you prefer a robust flavour.

    I could not find the option to add comments on the onion thattai recipe, so adding it here. I tried making it for this year’s Diwali (yes, yes, getting an early start to the snacking ;)) – it came out great! So addictive. Especially with a cup of hot tea – mmmm.

    It did take me 1.5 hours to fry the entire batch (I used the regular 250ml cup and scaled the rest of the recipe accordingly) but must say it was so totally worth it!
