Pollyan pitto-Dosha podi-Chutney powder ~ Step by Step Recipe

I love having dosas with dosa podi.I prefer dosa podi to chutney or sambhar.Idlis smeared with dosa podi is another favourite of mine.There are so many varieties of dosa podi,you ask 10 people for the recipe and ten of them will give ten different recipes.All equally tasty.I think creativity is the key here.You keep adding your favourite stuff and you come up with a new variety.Mixing of oil/ghee is also different.I,for one love adding coconut oil and nothing else to the podi.Here,in Chennai,people add gingelly oil/ghee to the podi.I have never tried it but I am sure that must be tasty too!!Its all about once tastebuds,right??

Pollyan pitto/Dosha podi/Chutney powder


Urad dal - 2 cups
Red chillies - 10-15(according to your taste)
