Quinoa and Oats Idli Milagai Podi/Quinoa and Oats Idli Spice Powder Mix

Quinoa - 3/4 cup
Oats - 3/4 cup
Whole Black Urad Dal or Plain Urad dal - 1/2 cup
Chana dal - 1/2 cup
White Sesame seeds - 2 tbspns
Red chilies - 8 
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tsp

Dry roast quinoa and oats separately till you get a nice aroma (approximately 3-4 minutes). Keep it separate. 
Heat 1 tsp oil in a kadai and roast whole urad until light golden brown over medium flame. It takes roughly 5-7 mins. Remove it and keep it aside.
Heat another tsp oil in the same kadai and roast chana dal until golden brown. Remove and keep it aside.
In the same kadai add red chilies and roast until crisp and changes its color. Remove and let them cool. Add sesame seeds to the same kadai and let them pop. It takes hardly a minute or two. Set aside. Once the ingredients are cooled down grind everything with salt(according to taste) in the mixer to a coarse powder.
Spread the mixture on a plate and once it is cooled pour into the air tight container and store it in the refrigerator for longer life. Serve it with idli/dosa/upma. Mix the powder with ghee or sesame oil while serving.
