Kothmira Karam Podi (Coriander Leaves Powder )



Ingredients

1 cup chopped fresh coriander leaves
3 tbsp split black gram dal(husked)
3 tbsp bengal gram dal
3 tbsp roasted bengal gram dal
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1 medium lime size tamarind
4-5 dry red chillies
3-4 garlic cloves
2 tsp oil
salt to taste

Preparation

Heat a pan and dry roast split black gram till golden, then dry roast bengal gram, coriander seeds and red chillies, separately, one after the other, slightly on low flame for 2 minutes till aroma raises. Remove and set aside. In the pan add 1 tsp oil slightly saute coriander leaves for 2 minute on low heat till the moisture dries up. Remove the coriander leaves and set aside with all the other ingredients to cool. In the same pan add 1 tsp oil and saute the garlic cloves for a minute till the raw smell leaves.
Once all the ingredients cool down, add all the dals, garlic, chillies, tamarind and salt to the mixer and grind into a powder. To the powder add coriander leaves and grind again until coriander leaves blend well.

This powder can be served with warm rice and ghee, idly/dosa or can also be used as kura podi(masala) for subzis like bhindi/okra, brinjal etc.
Here is a picture of bhindi subzi to which I added this powder and served it with hot rice and ghee:)
