Pappula Podi

We South Indians podi freaks. We love to have this spice powders with hot steamed rice and a dash of ghee or with Idli or dosa. In my kitchen I always have four to five verities of podi s. Some times they spares those extra few minutes of grinding chutney to go with dosa and idlis. And this podi s (spice powders) are good appetizer s too. Today's my recipe is pappula podi - dal spice powder.
