How to make Curry leaves chutney powder

  1. Curry leaves chutney powder is also known as karibevu chutney powder, Kari bevu chutney pudi, karuveppilai podi, karivepaku podi. The curry leaves have to be cleaned and washed completely before using. Also, pat them dry completely with a cloth and then add because we need a dry karivepaku podi chutney. Ensure the curry leaves are fresh, dark green and mature to get aromatic and fragrant curry leaves chutney.
  2. For making the Kadi Patta chutney powder, gather all the ingredients, measure them and keep ready. You can also roast each ingredient separately and remove them & then grind them to make the karibevu podi chutney.
  3. For preparing the Curry Leaves Powder ( karuveppilai podi), in a deep non-stick pan, add the curry leaves. Curry leaves are very healthy. To read more about the health benefits of kadi patta, check our glossary for curry leaves.
  4. Also, add grated dry coconut.
  5. Add the roasted chana dal. We have lightly roasted chana dal till golden brown and fragrant. You can also add roasted peanuts to make chutney more nutty and tasty.
  6. Add the Kashmiri red chillies. Before adding, we have removed the stalks and broken them into pieces.
  7. Add the sesame seeds.
  8. Also, add salt to taste and mix well.
  9. Dry roast on a medium flame for 7 to 8 minutes or till they turn crisp, while stirring continuously. If dry roasted on a high flame, the spices will burn soon and won't be roasted properly.
  10. Cool slightly and transfer the roasted mixture into a mixer.
  11. Add the tamarind pulp. To make tamarind pulp at home, soak tamarind pods (without seeds) in warm water for 15-20 minutes or till they turn soft. Mash roughly using your hands. If you want you can strain to remove the fibers and hard black seeds.
  12. Blend it to a smooth powder, without using any water.
  13. Serve Curry Leaves Powder immediately or store refrigerated in an air-tight container in the refrigerator and use within 2 days. Curry leaves podi can be eaten with rice, upma, idli, Pongal, etc. You can mix the kari bevu chutney pudi with ghee or coconut oil before eating.
