Kara Chutney Podi / Spicy chutney powder for idli/dosa
This chutney podi is one of simplest and easiest..but is very spicy...so use a small quantity with gingelly oil... the shelf life is minimum since it contains garlic...so use within a week or store in a refrigerator.
Red chillies - 5
Curry leaves - handful
Garlic - 4 or 5 pods
Hing - pinch
Salt as needed
Heat a tsp or 2 tsp of oil in kadai/frying pan and fry red chillies and curry leaves for a minute...add hing and mix...remove and cool...add this along with salt in a dry mixer or coffee grinder and powder fine...add garlic in the end( otherwise it will not powder well)...and just turn on for few seconds...this will look to be little semi solid and is spicy.
