Tastes yum chutney pudi with chapatti, bread and ghee, in Hachid avalikki are my favourite way of eating this yummy powder. It was a great lifesaver in the hostel we used it to pep up the vegetables up.

This chutney pudi is had with a meal as a condiment, dry, with yoghurt/curds or with oil.

Dry roasting on a low flame is crucial in making of this chutney and it does not need any refrigeration. Take care to use dry spoons to dole out what amount you need.

The main ingredients used are chana daal,urid daal, dry coconut or chopra, groundnuts, red chillies, curry leaves.

The other pudi or dry chutney that I have tried are Sunflower Seed and Garlic Chutney, Curry Leaves Chutney,  Lasun Chutney or Garlic Chutney, Agshi Pudi or Flax Seed Powder, Gurellu Pudi or Niger Seed Powder.  Try them all they make the flavours of the meal pop up.

The making of chutney pudi is simple here are the ingredients you will need.
