Gun powder or Dry powder chutney is usually served with idli or dosa in South India. This homemade gun powder is made with combination of dals and various spices. One can vary the spices as per taste. I like it less spicy so have added less chilies. But can opt for more :)

Here is the video recipe for easy reference:

Below is the detailed recipe as well:

Black Gram (Urad Dal ) - 80 gms
Bengal Gram (Chana Dal ) - 20 gms
Whole Red Chili - 2-3 pcs
Asfoetida powder (hing) - 1/4 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - few sprigs

1. Roast the dals in a non-stick pan/tawa on low heat till light brown. Roast the whole chilli lightly.
2. Grind all the above with other spices in a mixer grinder to a fine powder.

How to use it as Chutney - Take 1 tablespoon of gun powder and 1 tsp of sesame oil or melted ghee. Mix well. Smear on idli or dosa.
