My kids have major sweet tooth .My Mother-in-Law, makes this idli podi,whichis their  absolute favourite !Most of the time, they eat it right out of the bottle like they say in the Horlicks advertisment! ( the one before the adwars started."apadiye sapiduven")


1 cup urad dhal (Skinless black gram split )

3/4 cup Sesame seeds (Black)

Roast all ingredients one by one except the vellam.

Grind to a coarse powder.

Finally add the vellam and pulse grind for a couple of times, till the vellam blends  into the powder.
