imageNuvvula podi

Nuvvula podi/Sesame seeds powder is a traditional recipe with wholesome ingredients. This is a perfect recipe for winters. Sesame seeds are rich in iron and calcium. Sesame seeds have many nutrients. I’ve prepared spicy powder with sesame seeds, Bengal gram, black gram and coriander seeds and red chillies. All the ingredients are dry roasted. The roasted ingredients are ground to a coarse powder. Here I present tasty and spicy Nuvvula podi which is served as an accompaniment to hot steamed rice and melted ghee. Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
