 Sachin said he was making an Andhra style pizza. But I don't what gunpowder is, though I'm from Andhra Pradesh (though an NRI).

No, I don't think so. He said something on the lines of it being hot. And I think garam masala is more central India-ish, like Mughlai dishes.

Edit:- Correction - North India

Found this online:

If you've eaten a south Indian meal, you have probably come across a variant of what is often called 'gunpowder' in Indian English – spicy roasted lentil powders that go as accompaniments to various dishes. The Tamil name is molagaapoDii (literally spice powder, I think), but in Marathi and Kannada we call them chaTNiipuDii, or chutney powders. Each family has some tried and tested way of making them, and there is always one visiting aunt who insists that one lime leaf or lentil or coriander instead of cumin makes all the difference. And so the versions grow.
