Peanut Garlic Podi

Sharing is caring!

Peanut Garlic Podi, an Andhra special chutney powder made with roasted peanuts, red chili powder, and garlic. This is a versatile powder that can be served with many tiffin dishes.

This spicy podi is also called in different names like peanut podi, peanut chutney powder, peanut gunpowder, groundnut chutney powder, rayalaseema palli podi, Peanut Karam Podi, Palli Podi, Versusenaga podi, Pallila podi.

While peanut garlic powder is prepared and stocked in my pantry always, this spicy podi was introduced by Athamma. They make as a side dish for Rava Upma, Semiya Upma, Uggani, on toasted bread, and many more unimaginable dishes. You name it, they will pair it with it. So basically I always have this prepared and stocked.

Both Konda and Peddu love it with Uggani and Hubby Dear will have it with Rava Upma, Semiya Upma. So I find it easy to serve this, as I can avoid making Peanut Chutney.

Ingredients that go into making this Podi

Peanuts / Groundnuts: Deskin or leave the skin for the roasted peanuts you use in this podi. We always have roasted peanuts stocked through the months and years as we use peanuts in many of our dishes. While Amma removes the skin from the roasted peanuts, I mostly leave it as such.

Garlic: Enhance the taste and aroma with the garlic. So you basically remove the peel, wipe it clean and let it dry. Chop into smaller pieces for easy grinding.

Red Chili Powder: We use milled red chili powder. However, you can use freshly ground red chili powder which is coarse.

Storing this Spice Powder

Since we use fresh garlic cloves, you will have to chop it in smaller pieces, run it a couple of times, then add the roasted peanuts. Pulse it two or three times, scrape it down, then add the rest of the ingredients.

After grinding, you will have to spread this podi for at least a couple of hours for the wetness to be removed. Then store it tightly in a container.
