Sundal Podi | Sundal Spice Powder | Spice Mix

Sundal Podi, a flavorful spice mix used in sundal recipes. In our home, Amma never used this kind of spice mix for sundal, always made with simple tempering and grated coconut, so I was not aware of this sundal podi until recently.

I came across this recipe through Instagram and  instantly bookmarked and tried it a few days back, the spice mix is really aromatic and gives a nice flavor and taste to the sundal. 

Glad I gave this spice mix a try. In addition to the sundal recipe, it can be also used in various veg curries and stir fry. As navarathri/Golu season has started, make a batch of this spice mix, it will come handy for making the sundal in minutes.
