Andhra Kobbari Karam podi, Spicy Dry coconut powder

Today's recipe is popular podi recipe in our kitchen. This is Andhra style kobbari karam podi we regularly prepare at home for idli, dosa, upma and also goes well with steamed rice by adding dollop of ghee😋. It is very simple to make and aromatic with spices added in it, and no need to tell about taste😍. I use to add little amount of jaggery, it adds good taste to the podi.
I have other podi and rice using podi varieties.check it out for recipes

◆ You can add oil while frying, i prefer dry roasting. 

◆  Instead of Hing you can also add garlic. 

 ◆ Adding jaggery is optional. 


● Instead of adding sliced coconut you can also use grated coconut. If you are using grated coconut do not grind long time. Podi/powder will become too smooth.
