Idli Milagai Podi - Idli Podi - Chutney Powder

Idli Milagai Podi is a great accomapaniment  with idli, Dosa,Paniyaram(Gunta Ponganalu) & uttapam.This freshly ground Powder can be sprinked on top of crispy dosa, then it becomes Podi dosa & if you top it on thick uttapam it becomes podi Uttapam. you can try variations with dosa batter by using this Milagai Podi.My husband never eats Paniyaram & Uttapam without this Podi.I am not a big fan of Idli's.but with this idli Podi, i love to eat idli's. Idli Podi mixed with Sesame oil, coated on both  the sides of  idli's is Perfect for Lunch box or at travel.

I can't thank enough who ever invented this. A great life safer. At times I add sesame seeds also.
