We are starting the second week of BM # 29th Edition. I am planning to make Indian Spice Mixes that aid and enhance the dishes. These Spice blends are versatile and can be used in many dishes. For the first day I decided to make this spice blend with Whole pepper. The famous Kuzhamus of Tamil Nadu can be so easily prepared by using this spice blend.
I rarely buy masala powders. Other than Pav Bhaji Masala and Chana Masala, I mostly make other things at home. I even prepare Channa Masala at times. I am planning to make Pav Bhaji sometime. For the next three days, enjoy the spice blends and use it for making different dishes.
This recipe was from my paper collection that I had filed. I have always been planning to try those recipes, finally getting around making it.
Melagu Kozhmbu Powder
Whole Black pepper – 4 tsp
Dry Red chilies – 10 – 12
Coriander seeds – 2 tsp
Asafetida a pinch
Curry leaves few
Salt to taste
Oil – 1 tsp
Fry all ingredients and grind like a powder, and keep it in a air tight container.
I made the Milugu Kulambu with this.
This can be used to prepare Melagu kozhumbu or Melagu kuttu and Melagu rasam.
