Rasam Powder

I took a small break form cooking, blogging,..........  I was in a vacation. Hope you guys had a wonderful pongal with lots of pongal recipes.............:)) When it comes to rasam it is comfort food that can be taken every day. It goes well with a cup of rice and potato fry. My kiddos love rasam even for idli and dosa. I used to add grated ginger in rasam when someone is having fever or cold at home. This rasam powder was requested from one of my reader.... This is my way of preparing rasam powder.

Ingredients:

  • Coriander seeds - 1 cup
  • Red chilly - 3 cups
  • Cumin seeds - 1 cup (heaped)
  • Pepper - 3/4 cup
  • Curry leaves - 15 (optional)
  • Turmeric powder - 1 tbsp


Method:



Dry roast dry chillies, pepper and coriander seeds seperately and keep aside.

Likewise roast cumin seeds and pepper. In the same pan dry roast curry leaves if using. First grind the coriander seeds and red chilly to a fine powder, then add cumin seeds, curry leaves and pepper and do not grind too much. Add turmeric powder and give a twist.
Store in a air tight container.

Note: 
  • After adding cumin seeds and pepper do not grind more.
  • Store in a freezer if you are grinding more quantity.

Welcome back Anu, rasam is always refreshing and a good rasam powder is the basis, a cup of warm rasam is most welcoming in this cold weather here..

Lizy there is a sambhar powder for it. But no hard and fast rule you can add this with more red chilly powder.
