This is a must have spicy powder in all houses at Rayalaseema that can be served along with upma, dosa, uthappam, idly. Even at some houses, they eat chapathi or rice with this powder by adding ghee.

Till / Sesame seeds – 2 tbsp
Jaggery – ½ tsp
Garlic – 3-4 pods
Red Chilli – 6-8 (adjust as per your taste)
Tamarind – a small piece
Red chili,Jaggery,garlic,peanuts and sesame seeds


Roast peanuts until the skin turns brown and allow them to cool. Remove the skin and keep them aside. In the same pan roast dry red chili until the black marks forms. Keep them aside. Roast sesame seeds as well. Allow all the roasted ingredients to cool down completely and grind them into powder by adding garlic, salt, jagerry and tamarind.

A nice substitute for pickles.
