Sesame Powder/Ellu Podi

Homemade spice powders are always welcome whenever we feel lazy to cook up,every home have their own versions or their traditional way of preparing those handy spice powders, one of my mom's signature spice powder is this simple,quick,easy breezy sesame powder,this flavourful ellu podi goes awesome with hot steaming rice, i love to have this podi with rice often, i wont even drizzle ghee or oil while mixing this delicious powder...You can keep this sesame podi for a month in an air tightened box, they will serve even as Idli podi whenever you run  out of  your usual idli podis.. I just love to sprinkle this podi while preparing dosais to make them as podi dosais, also while making curries...Obviously this is one of the best and super flavourful podi we never stopped preparing them whenever we like having something spicy...A perfect podi to enjoy simply with ghee topped hot steaming rice..Sending to CWF-Sesame seeds guest hosted by Reva,event by Kiran, Vardhini's U event,Susan's MLLA#43 guest hosted by Cayenne ,and to Gayathri's Walking Through the Memory Lane,Sudha's Love for Lentils&to Flavors of Tamilnadu hosted at Sweet Karam Kapi.. ..

Totally new to me...not getting the recipe
Sorry if I sound weird...but I am curious to know how I can utilize it.
We have to consume it in powder form?
