Β  Β  Β I've already shared with you all my poondu podi and flaxseed podi recipes, but this peanut podi is perhaps my personal favorite, as well as my family's. It melts on your tongue almost instantly, and when you drop it on some hot rice, the smell is out of this world.

Β  Β  Β Today I prepared a simple channa masala and served it with brown rice, fresh red onions and green chilies, and of course, this peanut podi, which adds a sour and spicy kick, and I wanted to make something special for the three ladies in my life for International Women's Day.

πŸ₯œ Peanut & Tamarind Podi Ingredients 🌢️

  • raw peanuts (shell on) | 1x cup
  • garlic | 5x cloves
  • dried chilies | 5x
  • cumin seeds | 1x tsp

πŸ”₯ Peanut & Tamarind Podi Preparation πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³

STEP 1

peanut.JPG

Β  Β  Β Dry-roast the peanuts in a wok or suitably-sized pan, remembering to stir often in order to prevent any burning. Remember to use a low flame while roasting and take your time; we are trying to slowly activate the peanut oil.

Β  Β  Β Remove the peanuts from the wok when they are well-toasted, set aside and allow to cool to room temperature.

STEP 2

Β  Β  Β Have a hungry family member perform peanut de-shelling and winnowing for you. Make sure your peanut winnower doesn't eat too many peanuts, and have them return the peanuts to you promptly. Hide the peanuts from all family members until further notice.

STEP 3

Β  Β  Β In a dry pan or wok, begin roasting the cumin seeds on a very low flame, stirring occasionally. When the cumin seeds are fragrant, add the coriander powder and roast a few more seconds, remove spices from the pan, set aside and allow to cool.

STEP 4

Β  Β  Β Return the work to the stove, and while it is getting hot, slice the garlic cloves in half. When the work is hot again, add a teaspoon of oil, then begin sauteing the chilies and tamarind about a minute until fragrant, then add the garlic cloves and continue sauteing until all ingredients are browned and fragrant.

Β  Β  Β Turn off the stove and and remove the garlic, chilies, and tamarind, and set them aside to cool.

*Note - remove the dried chilies first if they being to burn, and then continue sauteing the other ingredients until browned

STEP 5

Β  Β  Β Add the peanuts, garlic, and tamarind to the grinder, and grind until you get a coarse powder. It only takes a few pulses of a few seconds each. Don't overdo it or you'll make peanut butter instead of peanut podi.

STEP 7

Β  Β  Β Transfer to an airtight container and try not to consume it all in one day. Enjoy with rice, idli, dosa, fresh vegetables, sandwiches, and just about anything that needs a spicy, salty, savory, and sour kick!!

I tried this today. I didn’t have a grinder so I used my blender. Had a few chunks of peanuts here and there but the flavor is awesome!!!Love it!! Had it on rice. My son asked for more. πŸ˜‹

Yeah, bless up sistren, good to know your boy liked it too. Nice to see you making this for you and yours, Ital is Vital. I can see how the blender isn't the best to get a find grind, but all good either way. When I make it in my grinder, I do it for three different 3-second pulses. Any longer than that and you end up making peanut butter on the walls of your grinder. Every three seconds I have to take the lid off and scrape the sticky stuff off all the edges to help keep it fluffy.

Wicked recipe! Really love it. I can imagine it would have been even better with a fine grind. I had to shake my blender several times to get it from off the sides and finer. Wanted to run the blender a few more times but remembered that peanut butter part and decided to go with a few chunks. The combination of flavors is really good. Here they have some toppings for rice called β€œfurikake”.
After my younger son had his first serving of podi. He said, β€œMommy, I want more of the Super Family Furikake!”
So that’s our new name for it. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚We have just a little super family furikake left. He’s usually a picky eater so I was surprised that he tried it and even asked for seconds. I went low on the chili but it was also his first time to have tamarind. Thanks man. Really appreciate the new recipes.

Thank you. πŸ˜ƒ

Hide the peanuts from all family members until further notice.

That's definitely the best part of the recipe! πŸ˜‚
This sounds really tasty! I can't imagine all those flavors together, but they're all good, individually, so I'd like to try this sometime! Thanks for sharing! πŸ˜ƒ

That is one of the most important steps in peanut podi production. The tamarind and chilies are what set this off!! I've eve put in on veggie burgers, and it still seems there's nothing it doesn't make better. Thanks for stopping by @thekittygirl.

I am going to make a load of this soon. I have never heard of podi until you introduced it in your last podi post. This is right up my alley!

I think I've shared three podis on Hive so far, but I think this one is easily the family favorite. We even eat it with Khmer and Thai foods, and somehow the flavors still combine nicely.

Yum yum. It's really mind-blowing. I am sure it is tasty. I will make it soon. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Thanks for the kind words @sayee. This is truly one of my favorite podis. Ever since I fell in love with podis my consumption of pickles and chutneys has greatly decreased. There is just something so right about podis.

I can imagine how tasty this is. Step 2 was so funny.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†

If step 2 is done wrong, the whole mission can fail. It's best if lunch has already been eaten when playing with peanuts, because 2 cups always turns into one. Bless up!

Haha!! I’ll take that advice. Sticking to the mission is crucial. I’ll make sure my little soldiers are full before they take on the task. I’ll have to make sure I’m full too, otherwise I'll just end up with tamarind podi or just tamarind. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

No matter how hard you work, you have no answer. You work very hard

Hmmm.....not fully sure I understand this one, but thanks for stopping by regardless. Peanut podi is not a lot of work, very fast and easy. !ENGAGE 10

It looks delicious and more like a snack. I could eat it all in a day

A delicious snack indeed, and we really love this podi with baras, a local variety of fried bread. Surely there is a similar street snack in Nigeria that could spruce up with this stuff. As long as whatever you put it on is hot, you get to smell all those delicious flavors.
