  • Channadal / Kadalebele – 1 cup
  • Urad dal/ Uddina bele – 3/4 cup
  • Split Moonddal / heserubele- 1/2 cup
  • Red chilies – 6 (use byadagi type chillies to get good red colour)
  • Tamarind- dried about 1tsp
  • Dried coconut and Jaggery – 1tbsp grated
  • Salt to taste

Tempering : Oil – 1tsp  and Hing/asafeotida – 1/4 tsp

  1. Dry roast (or roast with little oil), all the above ingredients(except dried coconut, jaggery and salt) till golden brown in colour.
  2. Once done, let it cool compeletly to that add dried coconut, jaggery grated, add salt.
  3. Using a blender/mixie grind them to fine powder. 
  4. Heat oil, when hot add hing and add that oil to powder mix well and use as needed.

We use this Powder,mixed along with oilve oil or ghee or sometimes with curds/yogurt as a side dish with dosas, rottis, chapathis and rice as well.

    we add curry leaves to get added flavour. saute the curry leaves to make it dry and crisp and add to the blender to mix with other ingredients as above.

    Agree with you here. An additional point on Mbodj though is the squad size regulations in the premier league which mean his inclusion in a squad would mean the possible exclusion of another promising player. So even if it’s not as big of a financial risk, it’s a risk in that it may impede the development of other players.
