Vatha Kuzhambu Podi Recipe / How to Make Vatha Kuzhambu Powder at Home / Puli Kuzhambu Podi Recipe

I always love having instant homemade powder on hands like sambar powder, garam masala powder. Homemade powder gives the curry or gravy which you make a real fresh taste, since these powders are fresh and not packed ages ago..I always have tavana podi, idli podi and kollu podi on hand, because you never know when they come handy for you..

Now this is my favorite kuzhambu podi..This podi is great because you dont have to worry about any other spice powders, perfect one to have on hand..So try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 15 mins
Makes : 2.5 cup of powder


Coriander Seeds / Muulu Malli - 3/4 cup
Normal Dried Red Chilli - 20
Kashmiri Dried Red Chilli - 20
Toor Dal / Tuvaram Paruppu - 1/4 cup
Urad Dal / Ulundu Paruppu - 1/4 cup
Whole Pepper - 2 tblspn
Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam - 1 tblspn

Mustard Seeds / Kaduku - 1 tblspn
Oil - 1/2 tsp + 1/2 tsp


Heat 1/2 tsp oil in a heavy bottom kadai. Add in all the ingredients except dry red chilli and saute for a good 10 mins on medium heat till everything is nicely toasted. Remove it to a plate and let it cool down.

Now in the same kadai. Add the remaining 1/2 tsp oil and fry the chillies for 5 mins till it is golden. Remove it to the same plate and let it cool completely.

Remove that to a plate and let the powder cool.

Store in a air tight container. I store them in fridge.
