My Tip:

Chef Tips: 01. Store it in an airtight container or else it will loose its flavour and will not have a long shelflife. 02. Broiling / dry roasting of each ingredient has to be done evenly, to extract maximum flavours. 03. Do not over roast, as it will impart bitter flavour. 04. You may use a mixer to fasten up the process for grinding the podi , but using a mortar and pestle gives an authentic and a very different flavour to the podi thoug it is time-consuming.
