Karuveppilai podi/Curry leaves powder

Do you have the habit of separating out curry leaves from your plate when any dish is served?Here is one way of consuming curry leaves.Curry leaves have a lot of medicinal benefits.So it is good to have it in some way possible rather than just throw away the cooked whole leaves.Right?Also, do not throw away the dried curry leaves which have become black in color.


Curry leaves-1 big bunch(maybe 2 cups)
Urad dal-1/2 cup
Chana dal-1/4 cup
Red chillies-4 or 5( as per you need)
Hing-1/4 tspn

Dry curry leaves completely so that no moisture is present.Fry the curry leaves in a pan for a sometime.This helps remove all the moisture.Once dried, keep it aside in a plate.
Fry urad dal, chana dal, red chillies and hing till the nice aroma comes out.
Allow all the above to cool and then grind them all together into a fine powder adding salt into it.

Serve this powder with plain rice and oil/ghee.
