Pssss.... There is another secret. A friend of mine had advised me long back : “ Do it once and Do it right!” Ever so grateful, faithfully I am following it and here I have modified it to my advantage - “ Teach it once and Teach it right!”
Note : Here for most of the dishes another most important component is chatnipudi - not any chatnipudi - but the one made with groundnut seeds. Recipe ? It's right here.
- With hot rice :
- With cold or leftover rice.
This goes great with hot rice and a little ghee.
4. Menthe hittu mosaru gojju.
Alternately, instead of tamarind and jaggery, you can use curds to make gojju.
Add 2 tablespoons of Menthe hittu to 2 cups of curds, add little water to suit to the consistency you want. Mix salt and season with mustard seeds, asafetida chilli and turmeric tadka.
Goes well with hot as well as cold rice.
- Hachida avalakki.
- Crispy masala corn flakes :
- Masala Mandalu ( Instant Bhel )

5. Congress masala :
Add finely chopped onion, cucumber, coriander leaves to 1/2 cup of grated carrot. Put a teaspoon of Menthe hittu, chatnipudi, a little salt. To this mix 2 cups of congress kakadlekai beeja and stir well. Add a dash of lemon juice.
Instead of congress, you can add hesarubele, or crumbled nippattu or kodubale. Choice is yours!!
