ringing this Podi straight from my grandma's kitchen. This was first among the recipes I jotted before moving to London . You will find a difference in my lingo in this post... :) Coz its just as my darling granny told me in her broken tanglish and I did a literal translation. Till date I have never bought any of these kitchen essential powders.. Just love the home made aroma...
Will post the sambar powder & dosa milagapodi recipes soon .. with no alterations..
