It is so easy and simple to make. Dry roast the sesame seeds, lentils and grind them to a coarse or fine powder. Idli podi is a must for my kids as they are so fond of it and always demand podi for dosa. So I make different variations of idli podi like curry leaves idli podi, kollu podi. Sesame podi is also one among them. I used Sambandi sesame seeds from Idhayam. I used black sesame seeds which is more flavorful but you can use white sesame seeds too.
