Idli Milagai Podi / Idli Podi

My Mom's style of preparing Idli Milagai Podi at Home in minutes.

Urad Dal : 1/4 cup
Channa Dal : 2 tbsp
Kashmiri Red Chilli / Paprika  : 1 Cup
Salt:To Taste
Oil:To Roast

Preparation Method:

1. Dry Roast Urad Dal , Channa Dal and Red Chilli separately in oil.

2. Let them cool at room temperature.
3. Grind them all together to a fine powder in a mixer grinder or Spice grinder.
4. Add Salt and mix with a wooden spoon.
5. Store in an airtight container.
Optionally add separately roasted sesame seeds while grinding which will give good flavor.

Have it with Idli / Dosa with gingelly oil.

Some people use to add little sugar to reduce the spicyness.
