I love idli podi a lot and that too with sesame seeds. But my husband & my daughter likes idli podi with garlic.I learnt this recipe from my mom.When i was in school and college, i used to carry mostly idlies or dosas with this podi for lunch . I love to eat this more than rice varieties. My doter is also the same like me . I’ll soon post my favourite sesame seeds/ Ellu version with dal . Please refer notes section for variations..
Garlic flavoured idli podi is ready !! Add sesame oil while serving.
- Adjust the amount of red chillies based on ur taste.
- Garlic pieces will be ground well even when u add at the end. If u want u can add it along with dals & red chillies.
- My mil makes the same podi adding hing alone. It also tastes good. Try for variation.Add more hing when u try this version.
- Sometimes i add few curry leaves while frying the dals which gives a nice flavour.
