Nuvvula pudi / Yellina chutney pudi / Seasame powder / Till powder


This one is an all rounder. We use nuvvulu / yellu / seasame / till seeds and make powder out of it. Use it in curries or eat it with rice. So when you have this powder ready at home, it can be put in any curry after the veggies in it are boiled. I made this today, it came out well :) . Here is the recipe  nuvvulu /seasame /till seeds which is rich in protein and highly nutritious. Though not aromatic, when ground with other toasted spices the earthy, nutty flavor of seasame seeds overpowers the flavor of the remaining spices.






Ingredients for Nuvvula pudi / Yellina chutney pudi / seasame powder / till powder :

1 cup white seasame seeds
1/4 cup senaga pappu (bengal gram)
1/4 cup minappa pappu (split black gram dal)
1 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsps coriander seeds
7-8 dried red chillis
7-8 crushed garlic pods
salt to taste
1 tbsp oil

To prepare Nuvvula pudi / Yellina chutney pudi / seasame powder / till powder :

1. By adding 1 tbsp oil, dry roast chana dal, urad dal on medium heat till they turn red. Don’t burn them. Remove from pan and keep aside to cool.
2. In the same pan dry roast cumin and coriander seeds till they turn red. Remove from pan and keep aside to cool.
3. Now add the seasame seeds and red chillies and toss them till they are crisp and roasted. Turn off the stove and cool all the roasted ingredients.
4. Grind the dals, coriander, cumin seeds, garlic pods and red chillis first (grind them coarse), now add seasame seeds and grind for three to five seconds only to make a coarse powder (if u ground for long time seasame seeds oozes out the oil and   it form like a ball or paste).
5. Use it in curries or eat it with rice and ghee.


Tips / Notes:
