Podis and Chutneys-Sesame Seed Powder Chutney-Til Pudi

  1. Sesame Powder Chutney-Til Pudi is a regular in my household as in most Andhra kitchens.

I have been for the longest possible time, on the road of healthy food thanks to Myasthenia Gravis. Facebook and other social media are nowadays bombarding us with healthy recipes that include the best possible grains, seeds, and lentils. There are blogs being written on the importance of including dry fruits, nuts, grains, seeds, organic oils in our diet.

 

Sesame Seeds benefits

 

It continues to amaze me how all the blogs and health and nutrition-related websites seem to be mentioning ingredients and food that have been the inherent part of the traditional Indian kitchen. In fact, most have been part of my family’s traditional recipes.

  • organic compounds like copper, zinc, tryptophan, calcium, iron,  phosphorous, manganese, fiber, thiamin, folate, vitamin B6, magnesium, and protein.

Sesame Powder Chutney-Til Pudi Recipe

 

Also called Nuvulu Pudi in Telugu, it is so simple to make that even a novice could master it. And it is so tasty that one cannot resist a teaspoon of it in your daily meal.

This 10- minute recipe from start to finish packs so much nutrition on your plate, you would! And as I always maintain, there is no point in having seeds for health purposes if it is not tasty!!!! I prefer it spicy, thanks to the Andhra blood in me, but feel free to reduce the number of chilies as per your taste.

Also, as I mentioned in one of my previous blogs on the 10 Lifestyle Changes I Made That You Should Make Too, I have completely shunned iodized, refined salt and have gone back to the traditional healthy rock salt. If you want to make that change too, you could buy the rock salt granules here.
