Milagai podi/chutney powder for idlis and dosas

I never bought or tried making this chutney powder or also called as idli milagai powder before until I started making idlis and dosas frequently. I don't find time to make chutneys and sambars each time I make idlis, thats where this one comes to the rescue. So heres the recipe for the powder
idli milagai podi/chutney powderIngredients-
Udid dal- 50 gm
Channa dal- 50gm
Mustard- 1tsp
Til- 25gm
Red chillies- 1 cup(or more if you want it more spicier)
Asafoetida/Hing-1tsp

Method-
Dry roast udid dal,Channa dal and til seperately till they turn a golden brown. Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds,salt, hing and then the red chillies and roast them for a few minutes. Combine all the ingredients and grind them finely in a chutney grinder. Store in a air tight container.
While serving, take the required amount of the powder and mix it with gingelly oil/til oil, goes very well with dosas and idlis. You can also rub them on idlis when you are carrying them in your lunch box.
