Vaangi Bhath Spice Powder

I will be posting some of the basic spice mix powder recipes which forms the integral part of some of the dishes.
Some spice powders will be multi purpose, which can be used for many dishes.
 This is the vaanghi bhaat powder for various types of vaanghi bhaat or sometimes can be used for even vegetables sabjis.
Now for the powder recipe,

Chana dal - 1 handful,
Urad dal - 1/2 handful,
Coriander Seeds - 1 handful,
Cumin Seeds - 2 teaspoons,
Fenugreek Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon,
Cinnamon - 2 inch piece,
Cloves - 5-6,
Curry Leaves - 1 sprig,
Red Chillies - 10-12,
Asafoetida - a fat inch,
Dry Coconut - 1/2 cup(grated).

This quantity is enough for 2-21/2 cups of rice.
If you are making in large quantities, then dry roast all the ingredients separately(except dry coconut) and mix everything, powder it, store in air tight container.
Dry coconut to be lightly roasted without oil and add to the spice powder and powder it again and add to the dish.
But if you looking at doing fresh and using it immediately, then dry roast everything(except turmeric and dry coconut) with a teaspoon of oil, until brown and powder first the roasted ingredients.
Then lightly roast dry coconut, without oil and add with powdered rest of the ingredients and add lightly roasted dry coconut, turmeric and powder it.
