Parupu podi.. Homemakers are always busy with trying or making different food items for their loved ones. I’m also a homemaker and I usually try different dishes for my hubby and my daughter. But some times, I feel lazy in cooking. In that kind of times, I always keep ready with some ready made pastes or chutney powders. I stored puliyogare paste, Dry Prawn chutney powder, Schezwan chutney for fried rice or noodles. My hubby and myself went to an Andhra style restaurant one day. I tasted parupu podi with ghee mixing with hot rice. Wow!.. It was amazing taste and spicy. I liked that taste very much and my hubby also liked it. He want me to prepare and store at home. The next day itself, I checked in some of the cooking blogs. In some of the blogs, they added coriander seeds. My hubby do not like the coriander seed smell. So I tried in my own way and it came very well. So nice taste and I added garlic and Toordal (Thuvramparupu) with roated gram(Pottukadalai). My kid also likes this taste and she is having as chutney powder for idly and dosa also. I like to share this wonderful recipe now. Let us see, how to prepare the tasty and spicy Andhra parupu podi.
