Great party favor

The cute card Pack arrived right in time for Diwali party that I was attending, curating the small fun elements of Indian culture in such a fun format got my friend all excited! It’s an ode to cuteness and incorporating play in this beautiful artwork is a dream for any artist and culture lover! great job on the play deck👌 And well timed! 😀

It’s the OG bomb yummy!

According to my Bengali and Keralite neighbors, who lappped this podi with their finger tips at our masala dosa party, it’s the best podi they ever had and they wanted to know which store to go purchase more! I used the podi to spread Over dosa before potato palya went in, it elevated the dosa experience exponentially! I have plans of using this the next time with Akki rotti! Very fresh, fragrant and the small batch wonder hits all the right notes my dearies, don’t skip this podi, it’s truly South India in a bag! ❤️

Simply yummy!!

Must have cards

These cards are nothing but my dream come true! All the little details on them look extremely thoughtful and completely brings back to my childhood life in south India. I can’t wait to play w these with all of my friends and introduce to them little parts of my life through it.


Working my way through the 5 podi set. I am completely in love with the OG and curry leaf polish. They are a regular part of breakfast in our home. Thank you!


Just like everything from Podi Life, this was delicious! Highly recommend.

OMG get it

Incredible, I had it with Dosa this morning and I am completely sold. I will be buying all the rest of the podi’s.

stunning flavors!

all of the blends were so flavorful and adaptable to cook so many different things. I used it in stews, daal, marinades, dry rubs on ribs you name it! I'll be getting these for my family for the holidays!

a great intro to Podis!

Deciding what to start with when ordering from Podi can feel overwhelming—especially when your spice cupboards are already jam-packed. The sprinkler set is a lovely way to try four flavors and really get to know them.

I received the hearty sambar, nutty moong, OG gunpowder, and curry leaf. They’re all stellar! The sambar is a must for making really cozy and nourishing batches of beans/lentils. The nutty moong is currently a favorite on roasted cauliflower. The gunpowder and curry leaf are great on their own, but I’m obsessed with sprinkling some of each over popcorn drizzled with a little ghee. So good!

I bought a 1 lb bag this time bc I put it on everything - yogurt, plain rice + sesame oil + podi, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, toast - makes everything tasty. Thank you for bringing me home to my life!

Was fresh and just right

Gun Powder - the OG
Sajani Amarasiri
Yum! Enhances everything I put it on

So good been putting it on everything for some extra flavor

As earnest a brand as it is authentic and delicious

First, the podis are just stellar. That's objectively true. My telugu, immigrant family loved them so much, especially the lentils, coconut, peanut, and curry leaf ones, that my mom is all over auntie whatsapp about it.

But second, I so sincerely love the mission and earnest love for Indian food and culture behind this mother+daughter brand. It's exactly the type of small business owned by women of color that you want to support.

So save yourself the time and just buy the sampler to see what your faves are and send them over to your foodie friends and fam as well - it makes an excellent gift!

Unapologetically authentic

Got the sampler kit. Gunpowder and spicy garlic samplers were too good! Curry leaf powder is fresh and adds distinct savoriness. Sambhar and Rasam powders are good as well. Overall for folks who want to try out different flavors of southern India this is a one stop kit that adds versatility to your cooking

Gun Powder - the OG
Reshma Srinivas
This is more like Parrupu podi than idli/dosa molagai podi

I was very excited to get this as we are unable to make it at home right now. But it turned out to be disappointing as this tastes, smells and looks exactly like Pappul/Parrupu podi that we eat with rice and not like the molagai podi that is commonly known as gun powder in the North which we eat with idli dosa.

Though it tasted good, we ended up having it with mixed with rice (plus ghee). Hope podi life makes a more spicier and simple molagai podi as well next.

( I love the mint garden and garlic podi)

My favorite!

Ok-after trying the trial pack of all the flavors, this is my favorite. I’ve used it in dhokla, on top of eggs and even in vegetable makhanwala. A little goes a long way in adding flavor. Highly recommend.

Excellent collection of spices!

The Peeku sampler is simply perfect ! I’ve used all 4 in various ways from traditional (mixed in oil alongside dosa and idly) to fusion (avocado toast, caprese salad, pasta, on fruits, on cucumber slices) and loved it all. The coriander is a stand out ! My mother even said it tastes exactly like how her grandmother used to make. I highly recommend the sampler and plan to replace each slice when I finish the smaller bottles.

This was a gift. Delighted comments were made

Lotta Lentils
