Karivepaku kaaram podi

This is my entry for Indira's JFI of Greens. I started my blog starting with JFI for Mangoes after visiting the beautiful site of Mahanandi. Since then though I am on and off from blogging, my passion for food and cooking remained the same.
Here is the recipe for karivepaku kaaram.I got the recipe online but kind of recap and my effort for this event.
red chilli-8
corriander seeds-2spoons
jeera-1 1/2spoons
tamarind paste-1spoon
black gram dal-2spoons
We have to fry coriander seeds,fenugreek,tamarind,black gram,red chilli in oil and remove from fire and cool it .Fry curryleaves upto dry in the remaining oil .Grind all the above to powder by adding salt per your tasate.Add jeera and garlic to the above mixture and grind again to powder. The aroma of this podi cannot be explained in words. You have to try it and feel it.It tastes good with hot rice and ghee. It also tastes good in dosa and idli as well.

Kadi patta seems to be the star of this podi - will definitely make this what withthe tree loaded down with all those green leaves.

thanks, smitha!

i have a curry leaf plant in a big pot but i'm not sure how to make it grow fuller.

it's getting taller and has a few shoots from the trunk, but if i pinch off the mature leaves, it just grows taller with no more growth below. but it doesn't seem right to pinch off the little stems at the top of the plant.

how do you take care of your curry leaf plant to make it keep producing and be full?

thanks for any suggestions!
