Print Friendly and PDF
Yum

This is my Tirunelveli Aachi’s recipe which I got from my mom.Its a great side dish for idli,dosa.It has a nice flavour of black sesame seeds and garlic.I guess this recipe may be new to most of u.Its very easy to prepare compared to Idli milagai podi.Just 3 ingredients are needed.Usually my Mil makes Ellu podi for rice and its completely a different recipe.Soon i’ll post that one.But this podi goes well only for idli,dosa and not with rice.If u are a sesame seeds lover,u must try this recipe.U’ll love its flavour.Over to the recipe with a picture Smile.

    1. It stays good for a week. You can saute garlic but flavor changes.
