Tirupthi Idli Podi Known by different names such as Milagai Podi, gun powder, chutney podi, it is a flavourful generic condiment in the South Indian cuisine made up of lentils, seeds and several spices. You would enjoy the VVS idly podi with idly, dosa or even plain steamed rice with generous dose of ghee. We use genuine, clean and fresh urad dal, chana dal, sesame seeds, red chillies, asafoetida (hing) and salt. It is a nice nutty taste with the aroma of the fresh lentils and the red chillies adds the hot flavour and the dash of hing enhances the sharpness. You may also add this podi with semolina upma, semiya upma etc to improve the taste of the dishes. VVS idly podi is as good as the homemade one of your mother’s!
