Chammanthi podi is the famous side dish in Kerala,India.This chammanthi podi is a flavourful coconut combination powder.usually we did idly podi to add some dals.But its completely different from this.
My mom made this and gave me when i was in hostel.That time i enjoyed this podi with hot rice.Its my family favorite too.Its also easy to make with simple ingredients in our home.Everyone store this podi for atleast 6 months in a airtight container.Another thing is We dont need to put oil in this podi.Usually everyone made this with fresh coconut but i prepared in dry coconut(kopara thengai in tamil).Hope this podi reach you guys.Enjoy!!!!!!
