Homemade powder gives the kuzhambhu and Gravy,  real fresh taste, since these powders are fresh and not packed ages ago. Here is a simple recipe from my Madappalli.  This powder can be used for Pulli Kuzhambhu & Kara Kuzhambhu  preparations. It will save more time a lot.


Dhania  / Coriander seeds   1/2 cup
Dry Red chilies                   10 no.
Kashmiri chilies                  10 no.   
Chenna dhal                      2 tablespoon
Black pepper                     1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds                     1 teaspoon
Curry leaves                      Few
Rice                                 1 tablespoon
Dry coconut                      1 tablespoon

  •  Dry roast the all the ingredients separately till they turn into golden brown color. Keep aside. Allow it cool (Stove heat should be very low.).
  • Transfer it to a mixer jar and grind them together to fine powder. Now Puli Kuzhambhu powder is ready. 
  • Store it in the an airtight glass container. 


    • Ensure no spices are burnt; in that case the taste will be bitter.
