Idli Milagai Podi | Side Dish for Idli Dosa

This is another version of podi I make for Idli/Dosa. As I had said in my previous post, here I am with my sister's version of idli podi. Wow, It is going to be 2 years already since my previous post on idli podi. This podi is a staple in my pantry and always will be present when I make Idli and is my most favorite combination for Idli. What is your favorite combo for Idli?
Per standard measurement cup
Toor Dhal - 1 cup
Chana Dhal - 1 cup
Moong dhal - 1/2 cup
Dry Red Chillies - 25-28 
Asafoetida - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - a few
Salt - 1-1/2 tsp
Dry roast all the dhals one by one until light brown in color. Roast the red chillies, curry leaves and asafoetida slightly. Take care not to burn the red chillies. Allow to cool and grind to a slightly coarse powder in a mixie or coffee grinder with salt. Mix with gingelly (sesame) oil and serve with hot idlis.
