I wanted to share this podi here for a long time. Even though this is a staple in our house, i somehow missed to share it here. This is a must have powder if you have kids or a toddler at home. This is great when mixed with rice along with ghee, my little one loves it.
This can be served over some rice and a drizzle of ghee. You can have it with idli or dosa too.
