Healthy and tasty chutney powder made with curry leaves.
Veppilakkatti is Kerala’s traditional chutney powder. Chutney powders always make wonder in your meal. We can serve chutney powders with rice,idli,dosa etc… This veppilakkatti recipe I got from my neighbor aunty. It is very healthy and delicious also. Curry leaves helps to reduce cholesterol. Adding curry leaves in curries while seasoning is a common tradition in South India.

All these are goes well with dosa,idli,rice etc..Hope you all will like this recipes.
