Podi Chutney -- How to make Podi Chutney

Kids make fun of me for the name of this dish as it is powder but it is called Podi Chutney. Podi means powder, but chutney is a thick and paste like consistency. 'How can one call it with both names?' is question posed by kids. It is a powder with little sweet and tangy flavor. All the members in the family especially kids love it very much.My mother is an expert in making it. My mom taught me a procedure and I am following it till date. I don't know what happens if we change the procedure.  It takes a little longer time to make it, but very interesting.
