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

Ingredients:-

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
Oil 1 tbsp

Method:-

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.

This goes to the JFI event hosted by queenspice and started by Mahanandi.

  16. Wow! I love this and have it with my idli, dosa and adai. But Andhra chillies are too spicy, and for that you needan Andhra tongue coupled with a stomach which is ant acidic in nature.

  25. You say to use "Garlic flakes 5". Is that 5 individual flakes of garlic? Five cloves of garlic? Five teaspoons or tablespoons or garlic powder? Can you be more specific? I would like to make this, but without that measurement I'm at a loss. Otherwise it looks groovy!
