I am a big fan of Coriander. I feel that the flavour of any dish is enhanced to many folds by garnishing with coriander. I get carried away whenever I see the fresh green bunch and love to stock it. Normally, end up making chutneys and thokku but this time I wanted to make Podi, the procedure I tried my best to recall from my mom's kitchen :):)
Coriander - 2 big bunches
Urad dal - 4 - 5 tbsp
Red chillies (whole) - 6-8
Asafoetida - slightly less than 1/4 tsp
Tamarind - small marble size
Oil - 1 tbsp
In the mixer, first dry grind the urad dal mix and salt till it is coarsely done. Then, add the coriander leaves and keep grinding.
Ensure that the coriander leaves are washed well and dried completely. Even little moisture would convert the Podi to Chutney:):)
As depicted in the pics, I had it with crispy Dosa. It goes well with Idlis and even curd rice. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!
