I always have a stock of all kinds of homemade masalas made by my mom. I ran out of curry powder that we use in fried and sautéed dishes and I had to make it myself. Guess what it has only 3 ingredients and there is no roasting involved.

Recipe Notes

Tastes great on dry fries like this pan roasted baby potatoes, chamadumpala vepudu (yumm) (arbi fry), aratikaya vepudu (raw banana fry), oh and above all bendakaya vepudu (okra fry). Can also be used in curries like this yummy eggplant & onion sauté (my absolute favorite).

  1. Hi Pavani,I use the same spice powders in stir fries like those with potatoes and arbi but individually. Blending them together is a handy tip. Thanks for sharing. The potato stiry fry looks so droolworthy.TC

  2. Wow Pavani, the potatoes are looking so yummy and gorgeous!!! On wow the light brown to the drak of the shades on a bowl makes me want for some now!!!

  3. Looks absolutely gorgeous….I share something similar.I depend alot on my mom’s curry powder too.But she roast the ingredients and then coarsely grinds it.She adds Chana Dal too….urs looks wonderful..very tempted to make this:)

  4. Beautifully roasted! Podis are very easy to make. But I always wonder why our moms prepare it for their children. guess it is just passing on love!
