Making Step by Step Procedure of Kulambu Chili Powder in Mixie:

Measure and Take all the ingredients as mentioned in the ingredients list, either you can dry roast them one by one in a hot kadai or spread all the ingredients on a plate and dry them in the hot sun for a day.  If it is too hot, dry it for a day, less hot for 2 days till the chilies and dhania turn crispy.

To check that if you break the chilies it will be easy to break and same dhania also if you break it will break into 2 that is the right stage.

You can powder them in mixie, since my mixie is able to powder them altogether, you can powder it in 2 batches too. But make sure that the powder is mixed well and fine powder.

Spread it on a plate, leave it for 5 mins, and then store it in an airtight container. That’s it, Kuzhambu Milagai thool ready!
