Note – In case if you find this podi too hot, then increase the amount of dal by another 1/4 cup. Add another 1/4 cup of urad dal and 1/4 cup of bengal gram in addition to the 1/2 cup given in the recipe.
(ie) 3/4 cup of urad dal and 3/4 cup of bengal gram dal. Rest of the procedure is the same.
Tips – Dry the chillies and dal in the sun for a day if possible before making idli podi. This is optional but gets roasted well.
