Milagaipodi /Molagapodi | Edible Gun Powder – A side for Dosa’s & Idli

Today, again I am writing this post for my own record. Writing down the recipes that comes from the family. Amma made Dosa Molagapodi aka Milagai podi when she visited me and I made sure I write it down in bits and bobs for my book. Then just like other classics – Rasam & Sambar , I am adding this recipe to the catalogue of  homemade powders.
This recorded recipe is bound to come handy someday !!
I never make any of these podi’s as its taken for granted that they come from home 🙂 Amma, Patty or my Chithi make them for me… So every year , I get a stock of fresh podi’s make by the expertised hands….
