Dry Turkery Berries Spice Powder/Sundakka Vathal Podi

Our second week of three days blogging marathon starts from today, from today onwards i'll be posting recipes prepared with sun dried products for three days.My pantry will always have variety of spice powders anytime, most of the my spice powders are homemade. I never failed to make spice powders with variety of dals, i was seriously planning to make some spice powder using dry turkey berries or either with dry neem flower since a long. Recently i got parcel from India with many spices and obviously my mom have send me a medium sized packet of dry turkey berries.

I dont have any excuse to make out my most awaited spice powder with dry turkey berries. This tukey berries spice powder have many medicinal values and helps a lot for digestion eventhough its tastes bitter. You can have this spice powder simply with hot rice drizzled with gingelly oil or either you can add a spoon of this spice powder while making tamarind based spicy gravies, thats the way you can have this medicinal value rich spice powder quite often easily.Do check out the other marathoners running this 17th edition of blogging marathon here..Sending to my own event CWS-Black Gram guest hosted by Shri.



1/4cup Dry turkey berries
1/4cup Channadal
1/4cup Urad dal
2nos Dry red chillies
10nos Black peppers
Salt
1tsp Gingelly oil

Heat the gingelly oil in a pan, fry the dry turkey berries until they puff up. Remove the puffed turkey berries from the oil.

In the remaining oil,fry the channadal,urad dal,dry red chillies,black peppers until the dals turns brown.let them cool completely.

Now take the puffed turkey berries, dals with enough salt and grind as bit coarse powder.

Store in an air tightened box and have once a week with rice or spice up your gravies with this spice powder.

We make Vatral Kuzhambu and I didn't know we can powder out of this. Love this powder idea ....so creative Priya ...just a question, doesn't it have a slight bitter taste?

Jayashree said... Reply To This Comment

I use the fresh ones for sambar and the dry ones for vathal kuzhambu. Never knew that podi could be made with this.
