Gravy spice powder(Saarina Pudi – Udupi style)

Saarina pudi

This Saarina Pudi is a special spice powder used in most of the Udupi gravies and sambars. This is very different than normal sambar powders. I like to make it fresh because it looses the aroma as days pass, but if you cannot, store in the freezer in airtight container.

Few dishes where this can be used are beLe saru, puLi koddel etc

10-12 red chilies
1 cup coriander seeds
1/4 cup fenugreek seeds
1/2 cup cumin seeds
Coconut oil
10-12 curry leaves
1/4 cup dry coconut (optional)

Heat oil and fry all the ingredients on a very low flame. Take care not to burn anything. Powder all of them together. This powder can be saved up to 7 days. As days pass, the aroma of the powder decreases. If you want to save it for longer, put in an airtight container and keep in freezer.
