Parupu Podi (பருப்பு போடி)

Parupu podi is a powder which is made with lentils and spices. It can be made weeks in advance and stored in an airtight container. To serve, just add sesame oil or ghee to hot cooked rice and add the parupu podi. This makes lunch and dinner easy and very less work. The parupu podi rice can be accompanied by curd or by appalam or vadam. Parupu podi (mixed with oil or curd) can also be served as an accompaniment with dosa or idli. I love this as a travel food, just mix with rice and gingelly oil and enjoy!!
