Homemade Paruppu Podi Recipe / Dhal Powder

There will be situations when preparing chutney or sambar as side dish is difficult. In those times podi varieties always come in handy. This is especially true in my house. In continuation with my earlier podi recipe series, I am posting this paruppu podi recipe. The unique variation of this recipe is that we use thur dal and roasted gram. It goes well with for hot rice and ghee or sesame oil.
