Chutney Powder with Curry Leaves, Coriander leave and Sesame Seeds

Today's podi is all about a mix of herbs and spice. Its a lovely combination of Coriander, Curry Leaves along with Sesame seeds. Sesame seeds are very integral part of Andhra cuisine. The most famous being the Nuvulla Pulihora. Sesame seeds take the mixed rice to a different level. I felt the same when I tasted this combination. Roasted Curry leaves leave your heady but when combined with Sesame seeds it was potent.

This can be used as chutney powder and served with Dosas too.
