About Nalla Karam Podi (Hyderabadi / Andhra Style Gun Powder) Recipe

Podi also known as Gunpowder is an essential accompaniment to any South Indian breakfast. They can very easily be made at home with a few basic ingredients available in every kitchen. This yummy podi can be stored in an airtight container for a longer period. So let me share an Hyderabadi / Andhra style podi that I sometimes use as a spread on bread toast / parathas / chapattis with a drizzle of some ghee or melted butter. Make it further interesting by sprinkling it on pizza, burger, hot dog, etc. Choice is yours.
