A few podis that I cannot live without. I make these once in about 2 months in small quantities to retain freshness. I used to get these from my mom, but she’s older now and I’m older haha, so started making rasam podi and molagapodi on my own, and slowly started making pretty much all the podis. Especially with the covid situation!
This rasam is super easy, and requires no cooked dhal (toor dal is added to the spices and ground into a paste).
This is a very flavorful rasam that is highly recommended when you’re suffering from a cold, or have had a few days of heavy food, and need something light. It makes a wonderful soup, especially when the weather outside is chilly and yucky.
Kootu is a one pot meal, made with vegetables such as chayote squash, green beans, ash gourd, and one of the dals (toor or moong), mildly spiced, and eaten with rice. It is a healthy wholesome dish, providing carbs, protein, and vitamins all in one shot.
