Idli Milagai Podi, is one of the popular accompaniment for Idli & Dosa in Southern India. Idli Milagai Podi is made with red chillies and dal. This is very simple. Just making a slight inclusion or variation, you could make Dry Coconut Idli Milagai Podi which would be much more tastier compared to plain Idli Milagai Podi. The main ingredient that is additional to the conventional idli Milagai powder is Kopparai Thengai (Dry Coconut). The wonderful aroma and taste of the dry coconut makes this podi so yummy. But make sure you use dry coconut. The fresh grated coconut would not be a right choice for this recipe as it has moisture, the shelf life will also be less. Kopparai Thengai Idli Milagai Podi (Dry Coconut Idli Milagai Podi) is a best accompaniment for Idli, dosa or even for Upma. This podi has a good shelf life like our conventional Idli Podi. Store this podi in an air-tight container and use only dry spoon to have a long shelf life.
