This powder of roasted curry leaves, dals and spices, transforms a simple breakfast of idli or dosa into a tongue-tickler!


Serve it mixed with til oil, or sprinkle it over idli, dosa or even upma . Do not forget to add the tamarind, as that mild tang is necessary to enhance the flavour of the Karivepilai Podi. If you like your spice powder very hot, you can skip the jaggery.
