Peanut Powder (Verkadalai Podi)

Peanut Powder (Verkadalai Podi)


2 cups shelled peanuts
15 dried chillies
1tsp cumin seeds
10 garlic cloves
5 curry leaves
1/4 cup coconut powder(optional)
salt to taste

Preparation Method:
In a large work add 1tsp oil and roast the peanut till slightly brown. Let them cool and rub to remove peanut shell.Transfer the peanut back to work and add the remaining ingredients. Roast all until golden brown.Let the mixture to cool off and transfer them to a food processor and pulse a few times to a fine powder.Store the podi in air-tight container. Verkadalai podi is a very good and tasty combination for rice and thosai mixed with ghee or sesame oil but I like to have them even for rotis and curd rice too.
