Idli Milagai Podi

Milagai podi is a spicy defaultside dish normally taken with idli/ dosa since my childhood. It is a must have at home to take as side dish if we do not get time to prepare any chutneys. When I was staying with my friends, my mom used to prepare this podi and one day I asked her the recipe to try out myself.
