This milagai podi recipe is family recipe that I have seen my mom preparing it which she must have learnt from our neighbor for sure I know that and in our house my mom would not make this in home but give it in mill for grinding, yes it was always prepared in large quantity in our home and we simply love idli podi from childhood though it used to be spicy.


This idli podi is again one of those recipe that I have taken picture many times but didn't manage to post it infact even this time I took the pictures 2 times but was not really happy with the outcome that I clicked it with Thinai Idli Dosa and finally I took again while clicking the ragi idli-dosa,  I wouldn't say these are exceptional pictures but then I decide it's better to share this or it will be dangling in the air again for ever. So if you haven't tried idli podi then make some and enjoy it with idli, dosa or anything that you fancy with. To serve we take little amount of this idli milagai podi like 1-2 tsp or more if you wish and add oil or melted ghee and mix it to combine that's all enjoy with idli, dosa.  Here other side dishes that you can try with idli, dosa.
