Roasted gram dry chutney or podi is one of the essentials in any kitchen. It pairs well with chapati, idli, dosa or even upma.

House becomes a home, she bonds the family with her love and care, she is the strength of all members of the family. Her name is Mom. Mother plays an important role in all our lives. From cooking tasty dishes to looking after the house,and managing all the accounts, she is instrumental in moulding us also into good indivduals.

Mother’s are good at many tasks. Regarding cooking,they make tasty dishes in a jiffy. Moreover, they are good at creating many different kind of pickles, papads,  dry powders and masalas. These all involve a lot of work which they would do without any hesitation. Thus, the work and sacrifice of our elders is not to be taken for granted. On this day, I attribute my cooking skills to my mom who is a talented person.

Today,on this Mother’s Day, I thought of presenting the traditional Roasted gram dry chutney. This is one of the earliest recipes I remember being prepared by my mother. It is found even today in her kitchen.

Roasted gram is also known as split dahlia. It is called as putani in kannada and this dry powder is known as putani chutney pudi.

Beleive me, having these dry chutneys are so handy. You can use them with idli or dosa when you are bored to make chutney or power is interrupted. They  taste goodwith ghee and hot rice. They can also be used as an accompaniment with curd rice. I remember during my childhood days, my mother used to keep chapati rolls smeared with ghee  and this  powder and pickles in the snack box and it was yum.

Wishing all mothers out there a very Happy Mother’s Day !

    This podi or dry chutney is so easy to make. I love podi with my idlis. As this one uses roasted gram, definitely must give it a try.
