This is a powder that is used for making brinjal fry.the powder is stuffed into the brinjal and roasted in oil which is popularly know as 'gutti vankaya masala' in andhra.the flavors of sesame ,urad give a rich taste to this dish.i usually make this powder and store in the refrigerator .i use it for only this stuffed brinjal curry.

4 table spoons urad dal,sesame seeds,dhania,cumin seeds
2 table spoons chana dal
4 red chillies or as per ur taste
salt to taste
2 table spoons coconut powder

dry roast all the ingredients except coconut powder and then fry for 5 to 6 min on a very very low flame.
now add coconut powder and saute for 2 min .
grind them in batches into powder.
grind the last batch coursely so that the taste is so good and crispy .


i add 1/2 a teaspoon of this curry leaves powder in some selective dishes .this has many advantages
those who dont have curry leaves at the time u need, u can add this powder.
good to use in idles,dosa with ghee.
good for those who dont like to eat curry leaves in tadka or other form.
good for preventing grey hair.

dried curry leaves 5 hands full
3 spoons urad dal
3 sp djania
2 sp chana dal
3 sp cumin seeds
dry red chillies as per ur taste

dry roast the curry leaves for 5 min stirring it continuosly to take away the remaining moisture.
