Watermelon Seeds And Pumpkin Seeds are super awesome and taste so fresh. They are high in protein and full of nutrients. However its difficult to eat them on their own. Including this in your everyday diet or at least twice a week is recommended. At first I made a podi along with other dals and then made this batch with just the seeds and urad dal.

Serve Watermelon Seeds And Pumpkin Seeds Podi as a side dish along with Steamed Rice, Keerai Sambar and Cabbage Thoran for a weekday meal.

How to make Watermelon Seeds And Pumpkin Seeds Podi Recipe

  1. To begin making the Watermelon Seeds And Pumpkin Seeds Podi recipe, first of all keep a big plate ready.

  2. In a heavy bottomed pan, add the urad dal and roast it till it releases a nice aroma. Switch off the gas and transfer it to the plate. Spread it on one side.

  3. Similarly, roast the dry chillies and transfer it to the plate. Next, add the curry leaves and keep a close watch ensuring that they don't turn brown. It should get crispy.

  4. Now heat the pan and switch it off. Add one seed at a time and transfer to the plate. Heat the pan again and repeat the process. Take the seeds out in the plate too.

  5. Next, add salt and asafoetida in the plate and let all the ingredients cool down for about half an hour.

  6. After half an hour, grind the mixture in a jar to get a coarse powder. Your Podi is ready to serve.

  7. Serve Watermelon Seeds And Pumpkin Seeds Podi as a side dish along with Steamed RiceKeerai Sambar and Cabbage Thoran for a weekday meal.

The seeds require roasting and if you put it in a really hot pan they will splutter and pop all over. In order to avoid this, heat the pan and then switch off the flame.

The curry leaves should be washed and dried completely. I spread it for 5 hours on a kitchen towel.
