Nalla karam podi is a South Indian spice powder that is typically served with idli, dosa, vada, and other South Indian breakfast dishes. It is a spicy and flavorful powder that is made from a variety of ingredients, including roasted lentils, spices, and herbs.
The name “nalla karam” means “black chili powder” in Telugu. This is because the powder is made with black urad dal and red chilies, which give it a dark color and a spicy flavor.
To make nalla karam podi, the lentils and spices are roasted in a pan until they are fragrant. The roasted ingredients are then ground into a fine powder. The powder is then seasoned with salt and other spices, as desired.
Here are some ways to serve nalla karam podi:
- Sprinkle it on top of idli, dosa, vada, or other South Indian breakfast dishes.
- Add it to a bowl of rice and ghee.
- Mix it into a chutney or soup.
- Use it as a seasoning for vegetables or meats.
