Peanut podi| Groundnut Podi|Verkadalai podi is an easy to make tasty chutney powder tastes great with idli dosa and also even for rice with a teaspoon of ghee. I have made many healthy chutney powder varieties such as Idli podi with chana dal, Kollu podi, Curry leaves podi, Flaxseed powder, Veppam poo podi.

This goes well with all breakfast items you could make Podi dosa with this. Or you could sprinkle on any breakfast like upma to make it tasty or spicy. The colour of the chutney powder varies depends on the chilli variety you use. You could make it spicy or less spicy-one.
