Thengai Podi (தேங்காய் போடி)–Coconut Powder

Coconut Powder / Thengai Podi is a powder made with coconut, lentils and red chili. It is a quickie that can be done in less than 5 minutes with all the Ingredients available in most pantries. It can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container for a month. Mix this with hot rice and a dollop of ghee or coconut oil and it is a great quick dinner. This goes for this month's Vegan Thursdays
