Velluli Karapodi

Ingredients for Garlic chilli powder / Vellulli kaaram podi

  • 1 cup red chilli powder
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 10 curry leaves
  • 3-4 garlic cloves with the peel on
  • 1 tbsp jeera / cumin seeds

Preparation of Garlic chilli powder / Vellulli kaaram podi:
  • In a blender add red chilli powder, jeera / cumin seeds, salt and grind to fine powder
  • Add the remaining ingredients i.e, garlic cloves with the peel and curry leaves and grind well
  • Do adjust salt and spice to taste. You can store this garlicky chilli spice powder for up to 2 weeks outside and couple of months in refrigerator
For us, these Vegetable idlis ( Kanchi Idly ) and Garlic chilli powder( velluli miram ) is definitely a sumptuous match made in heaven, you gotta try it to believe it. I'm sure this spice powder beats fresh coconut chutney or sambar along with the steamed rice and lentil cakes( kanchi idly ). To get the maximum flavor, use chilli powder with either clarified butter( ghee ) or fresh lime juice.
