Spiced Pinto Beans Powder (Chutney Powder)

This is the second recipe I tried with these healthy Pinto Beans. I tried a Dosa with these beans before that tasted super-delicious. This time I wanted to make a spicy powder with these beans as I love powders to eat with rice.

  • 1 cup Pinto Beans
  • ¼ cup Coriander Seeds (Dhaniyalu, Dhaniya)
  • ½ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • A pinch of Asafetida (Inguva, Hing)
  • 2 tsp Red Chili Powder (Adjust according to your taste)
  • Salt as needed


Heat a pan and add coriander seeds and roast until it changes color. Remove and transfer to a plate. 

In the same pan add pinto beans and roast until it changes color and transfer to a plate. 

When the coriander seeds and pinto beans become cold, add them to the blender along with cumin seeds + asafetida + chili powder + salt and run the blender until they are finely powdered. 

Don’t worry if you can’t get a smooth texture. It still tastes super good. 

Transfer the powder to an airtight container or bottle and store. 

Enjoy this yummy powder with steaming hot rice and ghee.

Hey Uma, That is an interesting recipe. Heard of Rasam with Pinto beans but never a podi. This sure is a "must try". Healthy food on the go when short of time.
