Lastly add garlic pods and salt and dry grind for half minute.

Tip:When you add garlic it wont stay fresh for more than 20 days.
So do every thing above as it is (except garlic) and store it in a
large bottle in your fridge,it remains for more than 3 months.
Place a few garlic pods and add a few spoons of karvepaku powder,
and dry grind and store in a small bottle which lasts for 10 days.
Like this you can eat it freshly by adding garlic for every 10 days.
Very good for digestion and health.
Ideal with hot rice and a spoon ful of ghee.
This is prepared in my in laws house,daily they start lunch with
2 spoons of this powder with ghee in it..
