Putani Pudi | Roasted Channa dal Chutney Powder | Hurigadale Chutneypudi



One more spiced powder recipe that stays good for at least couple of months! The spice level of this powder is low to   medium unlike the other chutney powders :)


Ingredients:
Putani/Daaliya/Hurigadale : 1 cup
Roasted peanuts: 1/3 cup
Garlic: 6-8 pods
Curry leaves: 6-8 nos, sun dried or dry roasted
Chili powder: 2 tsp, more or less
Salt: As needed
Sugar: 1 tsp, optional



Method:
Add all the ingredients mentioned above to a food processor & pulse till you get a coarse powder.
Can it get any easier than this?!




Notes: 
  • You could replace the  roasted peanuts with grated dry coconut for a fine chutney powder.
  • Garlic pods could be dry roasted too
  • I used 6 big garlic cloves. The garlic cloves available in USA are quite big compared to the ones available in India. If you have small cloves, I suggest using 10-15 pods.
