Rinse the curry leaves and pick the leaves from the curry leaves sprigs. Discard the stems and spread leaves on a kitchen towel and let them dry for few hours.
Heat oil in a skillet, add curry leaves and a teaspoon of oil. Roast them under medium-low flame until they turn dry and crispy. Remove and set aside on a plate to cool.
In the same skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of oil, add dry red chilies, chana dal, urad dal, and saute on medium-low flame till the red chilies puff up and dal turns light brown in color.
Then add coriander seeds and cumin seeds and roast for a minute till they are fragrant.
Once done turn off the flame and add dry or desiccated coconut, tamarind, garlic cloves, mix well. Let it cool completely.
In a blender add all the roasted ingredients, jaggery, salt, and blend it to a slightly coarse powder. Transfer it back to the plate, mix it well with your hand.
Store curry leaves powder in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a month. Serve chutney pudi with hot steamed rice, idli, or dosa.
