Pappula podi or putanala pappu podi is famous in Andhra and is used for various purposes. I tasted this first in my grandparents place Anantapur near a chilli bajji stall (mirapakaya bajji), the lady sprinkles this putanala pappu podi on the chilli bajji with some chopped onions which makes the chilli bajji (milagai bajji or mirapakaya bajji) more tasty and appetising. This putanala pappu podi everyone prepares it differently as per their home recipe and their taste. I prepared the powder just a small proportion one small bottle. You can use this pappu podi on plain rice with drizzle of ghee on top, on dosa or idli or upma as you like. Trust me you will like this garlicky roasted gram powder, which is my favourite and goes well with plain rice and plain fried pappad or pickle as a meal, when you don’t want to cook or you feel lazy or you don’t have time.
