Hey, that looks wonderful and loving the podi. I will save it for later. Do you think, we can have it simply with rice or is it just to be used as a masala podi for curries and stuff?

Hey Priya (Yallapantula) Mitharwal,

Here as you asked you can use this podi with rice, for curries and as side dishes for dosa. It can be used in any form...
