- Red Chillies – 1 cup
- Bengal gram dhal – ½ cup
- Urad dhal – ½ cup
- Asafotida – gooseberry size (or half teaspoon powder)

Thank you for visiting my site and posting your views.
Your recipes are awesome.. I checked in your site for Ellu milagai podi preparation method not able to find..fragrance of til enhances the taste of idli milagai podi.. I tasted it once in one of my friends house ..It was so good..Can you please provide the recipe for the same..
For Ellu Milagai Podi – same ingredients as in the Idli Milagai Podi, but you have to add til seeds (dry fry and add) and make this podi.

Hi Kamala, I need help what is til seeds and how is look like.
Til seed is also known as “Sesame Seeds” from which we get gingelly oil. In Tamil we call it “Ellu”. Check here for the picture of til http://fitness.makeupandbeauty.com/how-to-eat-sesame-seeds-and-its-health-benefits/
should the above ingridients only be used to make thengaai podi also mam.please post.
For Thegai Podi, you have to use more coconut and I have already posted Coconut Milagai Podi recipe. Please check it.
cup means what is the measure mam,100gm or 50gm please post.
One cup holds normally 100 to 110 grams and it is also depends upon the type of ingredient you are measuring. For Indian cooking, use any size tea cup and use the same cup for measuring all other ingredients called for in a particular recipe.
