This podi is eaten with hot rice & ghee.
This is said to rempove all impurities from our stomach & refreshes our digestive system.
This also prevents the tendency to put on weight after delivering a baby & gives “azakiya kaayam – beautiful figure “ & hence the name.
Pepper - 1 ½ heaped tsp
Dry ginger - 2 ½ “
Dhaniya - ¼ cup
Red chillies - ½ cup
Tur dhal - ¼ cup (optional)
Gram dhal - ¼ cup (optional)
Mustard seeds - 1 heaped tbsp
Sundaikkai - ¼ cup
Dry neem flowers - ¾ cup
Hing - 2 tsp
Curry leaves - few
In a dry kadai,, roast all other ingredients except sundaikkai, neem flowers & hing.
These three should be roasted, each separately, adding minimum oil.
Mix everything with salt & powder.
This is best eaten with “arisi appalam” & “ilai vadam”.
“Urad aappalam’ is better avoided with this, to prevent flatulence.
