ABOUT Karuveppilai Podi / Curry Leaves Powder RECIPE

Karuveppilai Podi / Curry Leaves Powder is a staple in my mother’s kitchen. She always makes many podis like this (Paruppu Podi, Idli Podi, Khus Khus Podi etc to name a few..). When in no mood to cook, just mix this with hot steamed rice and ghee and you are good to go. Tastes divine, absolutely healthy and makes use of the curry leaves that are otherwise thrown away. What else can you ask for.
