A typical Andhra dish For koora podi (curry powder):--
Channa dal--slit chickpea-- 1 cup
Urad dal --- black gram --- 1/2 cup
Dhaniya -- coriander seeds -- 1/2 cup
Jeera -- - cumin seeds -- - 3/4 cup
salt to taste
Red chilli powder --- 1 tab sp
Garlic cloves --- 6--8
Heat a fry pan and dry roast all above ingredients one by one and grind in to a coarse powder at last add salt,red chilli powder,garlic and run for 1 sec remove and store in a bottle this will stay for 1 month
For stuff brinjal:--
Small Brinjals -- 7
Koora podi (curry powder) --- 1 cup
onion --1no. grated
If you like sour taste add 1 tab sp tamarind juice
Mix grated onion,tamarind juice,koora podi in a bowl
Wash and dry brinjals with a kitchen towle and slit in to 4 and stuff with masala and press tightly (this will help to hold brinjal and masala togather and masala won't come out)
Heat 1 tab sp oil in a fry pan and set brinjals and cover with a lid and cook till soft in a very low flame
Serve hot with rice and any dal or sambar
This will be a good combo with Beerakaya pesarapappu koora(comming up)(this is my choice)

And you can use this powder as side for dosa and idli I hope you all enjoy this
