Manjal Vendhaya Podi / Turmeric And Fenugreek Powder

Turmeric and fenugreek powder is a simple spice powder that we use in many pickles. Also, it enhances the flavor of Iyengar special Puliotharai (aka tamarind rice). Adding small quantities of this powder greatly enhances the flavor and gives fantastic aroma and color. The turmeric variety that is used is the thin one which is usually used for making sambhar powder.


Turmeric - 1/4 cup, broken into pieces
Fenugreek - 1/4 cup


Dry roast both these separately till golden brown and nice aroma arises. Cool and grind to a powder.

Store in an airtight container. This can be stored outside for 2 to 3 months or for a longer period in the refrigerator.


Turmeric is hard to break. So use a hammer to break into small pieces. If you try to grind without breaking, ....time to buy a new mixer or blender.
