All the podi recipes are from my granny olly. September 1 of every year, she makes all the podis for most of the family members.
For the podis to stay fresh for long, use rock salt and gingely oil only. Also store the podis in airtight containers and refrigerate the excess portions. Keep them outside only as and when required.
