Ginger Powder/Inji Podi

My Mom n Dad are here and am so excited!! Today I made Inji Podi with my Mom's guidance. 
I am a big fan of my Mom's style of cooking and I would like to share this wonderful/useful recipe with all my friends.
This powder can be stocked for 2 weeks.
Ginger - 2 inches - chopped roughly
Urad dal - 2 tsp
Pepper -  1 tsp
Hing - a pinch
Tamarind - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Fry Urad dal, Pepper & hing in a kadai till it is brown and transfer it into a cup.( No oil required)

Heat 1/2 tsp oil in Kadai and saute Ginger till its tender.

Grind the dal/pepper mixture with tamarind, then add ginger to it & grind till its powdered.

Ginger Powder is ready to be served.
It goes well with Ghee rice.
Note: You could also fry curry leaves with ginger and grind it with dal/pepper mixture.
