Verusenaga (groundnut) podi


1 cup groundnuts (dry roasted)
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 red chillies
Few curry leaves
2 tbsp dry coconut powder
Salt to taste

Normally the skin of groundnuts is removed for making this powder..But we prefer it with the skin on. Dry roast the cumin seeds, red chillies, curry leaves and coconut powder.

Grind all the ingredients together to get a coarse powder. Store in an air-tight container and use as a sidedish for rice and other tiffin varieties.

Sending this over to Roma for her Long Live the shelf event.

We like podis a lot, especially if it serves a dual purpose. Please tell me whether I could use the peanuts that I get in Spencers or foodworld?
