previously i had posted the normal chutney powder recipe, which is a combination of peanuts and curry leaves. but this recipe is entirely prepared from the fresh curry leaves and hence totally a different recipe. moreover, karibevu chutney pudi recipe is very popular in mysore and bangalore region as compared to other south cities. in many other south indian parts, it is generally adulterated with peanuts or roasted chana dal (putani). no doubt, adding these would enhance the taste but i am not comfortable calling it karuveppilai podi. also, the curry leaves flavour is typically suppressed when mixed with other strong flavour ingredients and hence i prefer this recipe compared to others podi recipe.

furthermore, i would like to add few tips, suggestion and variation for curry leaves powder recipe. firstly, i always recommend using fresh and aromatic curry leaves for the best result. ideally freshly plucked green leaves are recommended, but if you are buying it from vegetable store ensure it is fresh and dark green in colour. secondly, you can also add a quarter cup of roasted peanuts or roasted chana dal while grounding to make it more flaky and colourful. lastly, store karuveppilai podi or karivepaku podi in an airtight container to preserve the aroma and freshness. generally, it should last longer for a week with its aroma. hence i would recommend to prepare it in small batches rather than going in a big bang approach.
