MW Mixed Herbs & Garlic Spice Powder

Serve me rice topped with ghee and dal spice powder, i can eat it even everyday.. Spice powders prepared with anything can be easily prepared anytime at home and its quite handy whenever you feel lazy to make some gravies...I do prepare spice powders with variety of seeds like coriander seeds,sesame seeds,flax seeds, herbs like curry leaves, mint leaves, coriander leaves, this time i prepared by combining herbs with garlic for making this flavourful green spice powder..I prepared this wonderful looking spice powder through microwave oven with a combination of herbs like curryleaves,mint leaves,coriander leaves along with garlic cloves,roasted channadal,dry coconut,red chillies and coriander seeds...This spice powder with rice and papads was our yesterday's lunch,everyone at home enjoyed this mixed herbs and garlic spice powder rice for their lunch and we loved it very much..Do check the other buddies running blogging marathon with me here...



1/2cup Curry leaves
1/4cup Mint leaves
1/4cup Coriander leaves
1/2cup Roasted channadal/pottukadalai
1/4cup Dry coconut
6nos Dry red chillies
5nos Garlic cloves
1tbsp Coriander seeds

Take the coriander seeds,garlic cloves,dry red chillies in a microwave safe bowl,heat for 3 minutes in high, add the roasted channadal,dry coconut to the spices and heat again for a minute in high,keep aside and let them cool..Arrange the curry leaves over a microwave safe plate and heat in high for 2minutes until they turns dry and crispy, repeat the same process with mint leaves and coriander leaves until they turn dry and crispy..Take everything in a mixie jar along with enough salt and grind as bit coarse powder..

Conserve in a air tightened box and enjoy with rice with papads or for stuffing veggies or else as podi idlies or dosas..

I love spice powders with rice too and can eat it without requiring a curry. As of now, i have been borrowing spice powders made by my mother-in-law. Your microwave methods seem easy to try. Liked the garlic chili pickle too. Could you tell me how to use flaxseeds in spice powder? Recently bought flaxseeds for the first time to try them and i have no idea what to do with them. And thank you for visiting my blog.

Thats an interesting powder, I have heard about one with curry leaves. But not one with coriander and mint leaves. Looks good and healthy

Hi Priya...I hope this won't be too stupid of a question, but do you find the roasted chana dhal in the Indian stores, or do you roast your own? I'm trying to learn more about Indian cooking (as I adore it) so I am still quite 'green' about some of these things. I love the idea of having a ready-made spice mix, so I would love to make this and have it on hand. Thank you in advance, and for posting a great recipe too!
