Dosai milagai podi/Idli podi

        Idli podi is a coarse mixture of ground dry spices. It can prepared and stored for three months. When we feel lazy to make side dish for idli, dosai, adai  you can mix this powder with oil and use as a side dish. I personally love to eat his with curd rice /rasam rice too. Make this and enjoy!!!!



Urad dhal – 1 cup

Channa dhal – 1/2 cup

Sesame seeds – 1 tbsp

Red chillies – 8 or depending on your need

Salt – As required


  • Measure all the ingredients and keep separately.
  • Keep the red chillies in the hot sun for few minutes. So that it can be fried easily without taking much time.
  • Fry all the ingredients to golden brown one by one.
  • While frying the red chillies add one drop of oil so that you wont start sneezing while doing that.
  • Allow the ingredients to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Later grind the ingredients one by one in the mixie.
  • Finally mix everything to get your idli podi.


Note: This can be mixed with gingelley oil or coconut oil and can be used as a side dish for dosai, idli, adai.
