Nalla Karam/Black Red Chilly Powder
This is done by mom, the taste is awesome. Usually Andhra lunch starts with hot rice and nalla karam,then follows other dishes. This can be eaten with idly and dosa as well.The taste is awesome when sprinkled on hot pongal.Before my mom came here we used to buy priya nalla karam, now i no longer buy this. Now the recipe
Red chillies 50gms
Coriander seeds 50 gms
Cumin seeds 1 tbsp
Tamarind little (can be adjusted according to the taste)
Salt as per taste
Garlic flakes 5

Heat oil in a pan, fry the red chillies for a minute. Remove and keep aside.
In the remaining oil, fry coriander seeds, cumin seeds and grind with red chillies until smooth.
Add salt, tamarind, garlic and blend to a smooth powder.
