How to Make Palli Podi with Step by Step Photos:
- In a heavy bottomed pan, add the peanuts and dry roast them over medium flame until brown color and their skin cracked. Keep stirring to roast them evenly.
- When they are done, transfer them to a plate and let them cool completely.
- Rub the roasted peanuts with your hands to remove the husk. This is an optional step. If you don’t want to remove the skins, you can skip this step.
- Transfer the roasted peanuts, dry coconut pieces, peeled garlic cloves, salt and red chilli powder to a blender or mixie jar. Pulse the mixer for a few times until you get a coarse powder. The process of grinding should be slow to avoid the podi or powder being sticky.
- If you are not confident enough, you can add a handful of roasted bengal gram to prevent the stickiness.
- Store in an airtight container and serve with idli, dosa or steamed rice with a dollop of ghee.
