Kadlipoodi chutney powder

Ingredients to make Kadlipoodi chutney powder

  • Roasted Bengal gram daal - 2 cups
  • garlic - 1/2 cup
  • curry leaves - 3/4 cup
  • Dry coconut sliced - 1/2 cup
  • Byadgi chilli powder - 2.5 tbsp
  • Roasted cumin powder - 1.5 tbsp
  • salt - 2 tsp
  • sugar - 2 tsp

How to make Kadlipoodi chutney powder

  1. Grind the roasted bengal gram daal into a fine powder.
  2. Add the garlic, curry leaves, sliced coconut, salt , sugar, chilli powder, cumin powder, tamarind pieces and grind it to a fine powder.
  3. Transfer to a plate and stir and let it cool. Once cooled transfer to an airtight container.
  4. Store at room temperature and consume within 15 days.
  5. Mix it with ghee/oil/milk or yogurt! Find your own favorite mix.
  6. Enjoy with idlis, dosas, sprinkle on upma, poha, chapathi, rice, khichdi, bread and pasta! Sky's the limit.

My Tip:

Sort the Daalia well to remove any pieces that are not roasted. These will add a raw taste to your chutney powder. Peel and remove the root end of the garlic. Tamarind should be dried well and free of the strings, seeds and the white membrane. Use Byadgi chilli powder. It will give it the authentic vibrant color with a mild spicy kick. You could use Kashmiri chilli powder or the regular chilli powder too if you cannot find the Byadgi kind. To keep it fresh longer store it in the fridge or freezer up to a year.

How come there is no help hint of green colour at all, when you have used curry leaves? Won’t do much gram dal reduce taste of curry leaves?
