Garlic podi / Poondu podi for idlies

 photo Garlicpodi_zpsb0893ba0.jpg

Garlic is my favorite flavor and I love them in anything. I always try to incorporate a couple of pods into a lot of dishes that I make. 

This podi is no wonder my favorite :) Its very simple to make and mess free side dish. 

I love to sprinkle this on toasted bread and have it. It makes a delicious desi garlic bread ;)

Dry coconut (scrapped) – ½ shell
Salt – for taste
Chilly powder – 2 tsp
Garlic – 4 pods
Ghee – 1 tsp

Scrape the dry coconut and run it in the mixie to get smooth powder. Add salt, chilly powder and garlic pods and grind again until fine powder.

Take a tsp of ghee in a pan and fry this powder for two minutes. Spread it on a plate and allow it to cool for a while and then collect it in an airtight box.  

You can store and use this within 10 days. 

Goes great with variety idlies. You can also sprinkle it on toasted bread and have it. It would be a desi garlic bread ;)
