Andhra garlic powder or poondu podi with step by step pictures. Spicy garlic flavoured powder which taste amazing when mixed with rice and ghee or oil.
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. Finally i made quite a few powders yesterday specially for blog. Will share all those soon.
Garlic powder is made from dehydrated garlic cloves that have been ground into fine particles. The flavour is garlicky, but not like fresh- chopped garlic. It tastes sweeter and less assertive than fresh garlic, but lacks the caramelly undertones of roasted or sautéed garlic.
Garlic powder / Poondu podi is a simple and easy-to-make chutney
powder made with dal, red chillies, and garlic that can be served with
idli, dosa, or even rice. This podi is also delicious in vegetable curries.
This can be served over some rice and a drizzle of ghee. You can have it with idli or dosa too.
Ingredients for Andhra Garlic Podi Recipe :
Urad dal / Ulundu Paruppu :
Urad dal is a good source of protein. Protein, potassium, calcium, iron, niacin, Thiamine, and riboflavin are all abundant. Urad Dal is also high in dietary fibre, is oflavones, and vitamin B complex. Urad dal should be consumed for a variety of reasons.
Garlic has a distinct, pungent flavour that, when raw, borders on spicy and, when cooked, borders on nutty. Sulfur compounds, such as diallyl disulfide, contribute to the mustard-like flavour profile. It loses its acrid raw flavour when dried and crushed into garlic powder, making it ideal for seasoning dishes.
