Recipe by Sangeetha

This is also known as Idli Mulagapodi. This is a traditional south indian condiment served with idlis and dosas. Mix with little oil, preferably sesame oil, and serve alongside idlis. There are many versions of course, and this is the way made in my home.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Please do not use white sesame seeds as that changes the flavor altogether.
  2. Dry roast each ingredient separately in a hot pan without oil till well roasted and a nice smell emanates.
  3. Take care not to burn the ingredients.
  4. Cool and powder. Add salt finally.
