Mango Karam Podi

4 from 3 votes

Whenever raw mangoes are in season, my mom makes this aromatic, spicy and tangy ‘mango karam podi/kairi ki podi what we call this at home. This is very simple to make podi and can be easily made if you have got amchur/dry mango powder at home.

  • ¾ cup Bengal gram/Chana dal
  • ½ cup split Black gram/Urad dal
  • 2 tbsp. dry Mango powder/Amchur
  • 4 tbsp. Coriander seeds
  • 1 tbsp. Cumin seeds
  • 12 dry Red chilies
  • 8 cloves Garlic
  • Salt
  • 2 tbsp. Oil


  • In a skillet, on low flame dry roast Bengal gram and urad dal separately until they turn nice red in color. Take care not to burn.
  • Take onto a plate and set aside to cool. In the same skillet, add coriander and cumin seeds. Toss until they start to change color and nice aroma starts to release.
  • Transfer onto a plate to cool. Again in the same skillet, add oil and when it heats up add dry red chillies and fry until they turn dark.
  • Remove onto a kitchen plate and leave it to cool. Upon cooling add roasted Bengal gram and black gram to coarse. Add roasted coriander seeds and cumin seeds and grind again.
  • Pulse by adding fried red chilies. Now add dry mango powder, salt and garlic cloves. Grind until coarse and check for salt. If required add and pulse for a second and remove into a clean and dry air tight container.
  • Serve by adding little warm melted ghee on plate with idli/dosa/pungulu/paniyaram. I served this with ‘Gunta Pungulu’ and every love at home just loved it.
