Palakkadan Idli Podi (chutney Powder For Idlis The Palakkad Style)
This is a recipe that I sourced from my hostel mate from Palakkad in my IIT days. She gave me a rough idea of the ingredients and I tried this recipe twice to equal the recipe she shared. I was no fan of chutney powders before but now that I make my own I force feed my family with this. Every time I make this I have a friend who wants to learn this recipe and we end up sharing the ingredients and final product. I also love having this chutney powder with some rice and ghee. I guess this would be the first chutney my baby girl will soon have and at the pace she seems to be moving like sipping tea at 8 months and polishing off half a ragi idli, chutney powder is inching towards her plate. I have named this chutney powder Palakkadan as a dedication to my friend's mom whose recipe this is.
