Flax Seeds & Oats Spice Powder/Karamadhu Podi

Usually karamadhu podi is prepared with dals, coriander seeds, red chillies, hing and turmeric powder for making out curries with this podi...My version of karamadhu podi goes for healthy stuffs like flax seeds and oats which i used while roasting the dals and spices...Adding flax seeds and oats turned out this spice powder more healthier and while making out curries with podi u can get a fantastic, healthy and prefect dry curries with any sort of veggies, this spice powder can be conserved in air tightened box for more than a month and very handy while making out stir fries, quick to prepare too also suits prefectly for stuffing okras or brinjals for making out stuffed dishes...Am sending this spice powder to CWS-Coriander seeds guest hosted by RV,event by me...


1cup Coriander seeds
1/4cup Channa dal
2tbsp Urad dal
1tsp Toor dal
1/4cup Flax seeds
10nos Red chillies
1/4cup Rolled oats
Salt
1/2tsp Asafoetida powder
1/4tsp Turmeric powder

Dry roast the channa dal, urad dal,toor dal, dry red chillies until they turns golden brown..now add the coriander seeds and dry roast until the aroma comes out,put off the stove and finally add the rolled oats and flax seeds with asafoetida powder and turmeric powder.stir for few minutes..

Add the salt to the dry roasted ingredients and grind as coarse powder...Use for making out dry curries with any sort of veggies...conserve in air-tightened box and refrigerate for long use...
