Seriously these masala powders are saviours when there is urgency to finish off cooking or when there is no enough patience to cook.

I got to know about this Pottukadalai Podi Recipe when I was in school in my home town. My classmates used to get it during the Morning Schools time. It is called Pappula Podi or Putnala Podi in Telugu. Fried Gram is called Pappulu in some parts of Andhra while the Telangana Folks call it Putnala Pappu. It was often given along with Puffed Rice Upma in some small road side stalls in my place. Some people add garlic abundantly to enhance the taste. You can even prepare this without adding garlic.
And what more we want, just take this Pottukadalai Podi in one bowl, mix some water and give a nice tempering. Delicious chutney is ready in no time with no grinding involved. It’s nice isn’t it? I even spread this liberally on my dosas.It tastes yummy.
