Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Servings: 4 tbsp
- 10 red chilli
- 7 garlic cloves
- 3 tbsp coriander seeds dhaniya
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp oil
In a kadai/ pan, roast red chilli, dhaniya and black pepper in a tsp of oil until the dhaniya turns fragrant, crisp and golden.
Cool down and grind it with garlic and salt to coarse powder. You can first powder everything together and lastly add garlic and run coarsely too.
- This is so similar to my dhaniya podi I grind for rice, just that the ratio is totally different.
- Eat with loads of sesame oil, like eating with a flavored oil ;)
- I added garlic as such with skin. You can peel the skin and add too, but the texture will be more moist.
