Garlic, Masala Powders

Garlic Powder


2 Garlic cloves
2 tablespoon Dry Coconut
6 or 8 Dry Red Chillies
1/2 tsp Coriander
1 tsp Urad dal
Little bit Jeera (optional)
Little Oil for frying


Heat the oil in a small frying pan, add your coriander, chillies, urad dal until they are slightly brown. You can smell the coriander. Let it cool for 5 to 7 minutes.
Then put all the ingredients, dry coconut and garlic cloves in a coffee grinder to grind them. Grind it coarsely and add salt to taste. We usually eat this with our pappu (South Indian Dal) or sprinkle on your steamed vegetables or eat it with your hot rice with ghee. You will love it.
