Hulisaar pudi .... Kitchen Basics

Hulisaar powder is one of the flavorful ingredient to make vegitable saaru in karnatak, a popular south Indian vegitable based gravy. Each home has their own signature recipe for the Hulisaar powderHere, I share my mom’s version, which we usually prepare at our home. My mom makes the absolutely best and  mouth-watering vegitable based gravy! 

Ingredients for Hulisaar pudi :

1kg  Guntur red chilli

1/4kg Byadagi red chilli
1kg Coriander seeds
1/4cup Fenugreek seeds
1/4cup turmeric

To prepare this powder :

1. In a fry pan Dry roast all the above mentioned ingredients separately ( you can adjust red chillies according to your spice level ) except turmeric powder. 
2. Make sure that all the ingredients are nicely cooked in a very slow flame, to ensure, just fold the red chilli and it should break in to pieces in no time. If all the ingredients are cooked good they can be powdered easily.
3. Switch off the flame and let all ingredients cool for 10 mins.
4. Grind them in to a fine powder.

Tips / Notes:

·        You may sieve it before storing if preferred (unless you are using a heavy duty mixer).
·        Store in an airtight glass jar. Use as required. As with most condiments, use only DRY spoons to increase the shelf life.
