i have already shared 2 variations of south indian podi or pudi recipe, i.e chutney pudi – a karnataka version and idli podi – a tamil version. hence i thought of sharing an andhra version this time hence i am sharing the paruppu podi recipe with garlic. having said that there is tamil version of paruppu podi which is generally prepared without garlic and more basic with just toor dal and roasted chana dal. i personally like the garlic flavoured podi recipe and hence i am sharing this version. moreover, in south india kandi podi is generally used as taste enhancer served with rasam rice and sambar rice. but i enjoy this my day to day breakfast too. i like it with idli and dosa and especially with masala dosa and i sprinkle it with potato stuffing. basically, the bottom line is, it is wonder spice powder with multipurpose use.

furthermore some easy tips, recommendations and variations while preparing paruppu podi recipe. firstly, there is myriad variation to this recipe and the first variation is to prepare it without toor dal and with just roasted chana dal. i personally do not like it with just roasted chana dal, but it is a popular option. secondly, the other variation is the obvious garlic flavour and can be prepared without it with no garlic recipes. it is not a mandatory ingredient and is mainly used for the garlic flavour. lastly, i have added 4-5 red chillies for a medium spicy podi recipe. but this can be easily varied as per the spice preference.
