Spicy Curry Leaves Powder

కరివేపాకు పొడి


  • 4 cups Curry Leaves (కరివేపాకు పొడి)
  • ¼ cup Black Gram (మినప్పప్పు, Urad Dal)
  • 2 tbsp Bengal Gram (పచ్చిశనగపప్పు, Chana Dal)
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 8 whole Red Chilies (dry)
  • A pinch of Asafetida (ఇంగువ, Hing)
  • 1 or 2 tsp Oil
  • Salt as required


Wash curry leaves well and spread on a newspaper for some time until the water dries out.

Heat oil in a pan and add red chilies + urad dal + chana dal and sauté well until the dals change color. Transfer to a plate.

Then add cumin seeds + asafetida + curry leaves to the same pan and sauté well for some time. Transfer the contents to a different plate. Leave the contents for some time until they cool down.

Later add dals to the blender first and blend into a powder. To this add red chilies and grind again. Finally add the curry leaves mixture and salt and run the blender until the contents become powdery.

Transfer the powder to a airtight jar and enjoy with rice and a dollop of ghee. Yum!!

This aromatic and healthy (curry leaves are good for eyes) powder can be stored for many days.
