HorseGram Podi

I was paired with Priya of for this months blog hop .She has a wonderful collection of fabulous recipes and when i saw this traditional recipe  at her blog i knew what i wanted to cook. Horsegram which is called  mudhira in malayalam  is said to be  very warm so its really good podi for winter season . I have heard ,my mom say that horse gram should be used very judiciously in summer but can be eaten in winter in which ever form you like.

Horsegram /Mudhira - 1/4 cup
Toor Dal - 1 tbsp
Whole Dry Red Chilli - 1 
Peppercorn - a few

  1. Roast horsegram till color changes to dark red on low heat.
  2. Roast the dal to golden on low heat.
  3. Roast the red chili till fragrant.
  4. And toss black pepper too for a few minutes on low heat.
  5. Once everything cools grind it to a powder.

Serve sprinkled on hot rice with ghee or use as seasoning for vegetable.
