Though its been a while since we these two together, once we made it, we repeated it twice already. This spicy dal podi tastes great with regular idlis as well. Hubby dear is very fond of this combination and keeps asking us to repeat. Though with the regular menu getting prepared, we at times tend to forget to prepare this batter. So times like that, having a pre planned menu surely helps.
There was a time when we used to prepare many different podis that are so typical of our south Indian cuisine. These days we are limiting ourselves to just handful and this podi features a lot in that list. This is highly recommended to have in your pantry.
