Pooram Varuthathu | Poora Podi | Avalose Podi ~ Malabar Roasted Rice Flour Snack
roasted rice flour (I used Nirapara)
A pinch of salt
black cumin seeds
A pinch of turmeric powder
Add ingredients from puttu podi to water in a large bowl and give a good mix.
In a large saucepan, once heated and dry, add these ingredients and start roasting, stirring occasionally till the mixture looks toasted and golden brown.
Cook on medium-low flame, tossing the mixture to avoid burning. The process may take around 20-25 minutes to get done.
Switch off and spread onto a large plate to cool. Once the mixture is lukewarm, toss in the sugar. Allow to cool completely.
Store in airtight container and enjoy with a cup of tea as is, or with a banana.
This keeps good in an air tight container for two weeks.
