    Hi, authentic paruppu podi does not use any other dals except Toor dal. Also we dont use curry leaves. I give the recipe here
    Toor dal – 1 cup
    Black pepper – 1 tsp
    Red chilly (opt) – 3 . Increase qty if using less pepper
    1 inch piece dry ginger (sukku)
    1/4 tsp asafoetida
    Roast all ingredients dry , cool , add salt and grind coarsely.
