  1. Hi

    This is Sweta. Cud u tell me with what other dishes (Apart from Idli and dosa) could we have this Idli podi………….we have kids and elders in our house who cant stand very spicy podi …….

  2. Thank you for visiting my site.

    I do not understand which Podi you are talking about. If you refer Idli Milagai Podi, it can be taken with idli and dosa and you can spread the podi mixed with oil on the chapaties and roll it. When you make idli upma, you can sprikle little idli podi.

    If you refer to the rice mix powder, you can use it while preparing poriyal varieties.

    If you want to serve for kids and elders, you can reduce the amount of chillies. You can also prepare Paruppu Podi which is mild only.
