In the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, podis (spice powder) are a staple in every household, with most families keeping their own secret recipes. This potent blend includes Nagauri cumin seeds and Nandini coriander seeds; it adds a quick, easy boost of flavor to any meal. Try it sprinkled over a fried egg or in vegetable stir-fry, or simply over rice with a dollop of ghee.
