Poppyseeds & Quinoa Spice Powder

Most of us would have heard or made poppy seeds spice powder which goes terribly awesome with hot steaming rice topped ghee and papads, this is my version of that same poppy seeds powder with quinoa..Needless to say that this podi tastes fabulous eventhough i have added quinoa in this spice powder..This powder goes always fabulous to spice up many dishes, yep i tried making a stir fry with broad beans and potatoes with this powder and pepper powder and its tastes awesome, i'll be posting them very soon too..This poppy seeds spice powder can be enjoyed very well with rice also ....Obviously this is my one more entry to CWS-Poppy Seeds guest hosted by Sudeshna, event by me..

Poppy seeds podi
