About this Recipe

Gun powder or Dry powder chutney is usually served with idli or dosa in South India. This homemade gun powder is made with combination of dals and various spices. One can vary the spices as per taste. I like it less spicy so have added less chilies. But can opt for more :)

Ingredients & Quantity
  • Black Gram (Urad Dal ) - 80 gms
  • Bengal Gram (Chana Dal ) - 20 gms
  • Whole Red Chili - 2-3 pcs
  • Asfoetida powder (hing) - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
  • Curry leaves - few sprigs
How to cook?
  1. Roast the dals in a non-stick pan/tawa on low heat till light brown. Roast the whole chilli lightly.
  2. Grind all the above with other spices in a mixer grinder to a fine powder.
  3. How to use it as Chutney - Take 1 tablespoon of gun powder and 1 tsp of sesame oil or melted ghee. Mix well. Smear on idli or dosa.
