Karam Podi Breadu ~ Bread Sandwich with Spicy Podi

My husband dislikes bread in any form. And I love bread in all forms and all times. Our tastes and likes have been so different in many ways. For me, breads and buns have been an integral part of food, but to make my hubby dear eat these was a big task. There was a time when he wouldn't eat Bread Omelet because his cook in Delhi, used to make it so awful that he lost liking to it. It took many years to convince him otherwise.

Bang entered Athamma! and there I saw this little boy running around his amma, asking for all weird stuffs to be prepared! Surprise surprise, hubby dear does like to eat bread but if made as how his amma makes. Well I did get wild hearing it but then everybody likes their Mom's cooking, and moreover when he is ready to eat bread, why should I worry. And out came this magical Spicy Podi, that they just would sprinkle around, on all things they choice and consume heartily. Gourmets but of a different kind! I made sure they don't sprinkle on me!..

I am a person who is ready for all types of snack stuffs and this did look and sound to be interesting. But then I do have my face to keep up right, so I let hubby dear cajole and persuade me to have a bite of this sandwich. He said they would use this on Dosa, Rice, Ragi Sangati and what not! the list was endless. I was only surprised I was never told about it. But you should see hubby dear looking so sweetly at me everytime I eat this. Little does he know that I actually love it.

Here you go for this wonder podi

Ingredients Needed:

Fresh Coconut : 1/2
Red Chillies - 5
Garlic - 4 pods
Salt to taste

"Well I did get wild hearing it "...happens here too. But as you say eveyone likes their mom's cooking better than anything.

This is a different dish to try out. We are used with sandwiches and other usual stuffs.
