Palli Podi Recipe – A simple, delightful, solid and flexible Andhra style nut podi for idli, dosa or rice.

Palli Podi or Verusenaga Podi or Peanut is a very basic Andhra podi formula for idli, dosa or steamed rice. I have arranged this podi with garlic. On the off chance that you don't care for garlic, you may skip it. This can be made in mass and store in an impermeable compartment for over a month.

  • Take a skillet or pan,roast the peanuts until they became slight brown colour.
  • Take peanuts out from warmth and let them cool,Keep them aside.
