It's said that the stack gives a good fiber to the powder, so if you have washed and dried you can powder the chilies with the stacks.
Today is the last day of the first week of BM, and a small recap for you:
Goddukaram / Goddu Karam ~ Fiery Red Chili Powder with Garlic
- 1 cup Dry Red Chilies
- Salt to taste
- 1/4 cup Garlic chopped
How to make the Karam
- In a kadai, dry roast the red chilies after removing the stack. Make sure they don't get charred, allow to cool.
- In a mixer, take the red chilies, add salt and add the peeled garlic. Pulse to get a coarse powder.
- Store in a dry jar.
- This is normally served with hot steaming rice with ghee or oil. Mixed and eaten. I have eaten this with dosa / idli as well.
