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
