Curry Leaves Podi

I had lots of (2 large zip lock bags)dry curry leaves which sent by my MIL. For a long time I don't know what to do with this much of curry leaves even after given some of them to my SIL and friends.... And one day my hubby picked curry leaves podi packs from Indian grocery, a light sparked that time. Stopped him and prepared it at my home itself. He was surprised to see the podi.

Its simple to prepare and mouth watering with hot idlies/rice. Even the aroma is good to sense.
