Rasam Powder

This recipe is the one given by one of my neighbors called Sathya. My children just love the rasam made by her. So I follow this recipe and make rasam as per her recipe. Once you get addicted to the taste of this rasam, you don’t need any other gravy for lunch. This week I will blog the rasam recipe .Any cup of your choice can be used for measurement

Ingredients

Chillies-3 cups

Coriander seeds-4 cups
Pepper-1 cup
Cumin seeds-1 cup
Fenugreek seeds-1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds-1 teaspoon
Urudh dhal- 1 teaspoon
Thoor dhal- ½ table spoon
Bengal gram -½ table spoon
Asafetida-little

Procedure
Dry the chilies and coriander in the sun if possible.
Dry roast the coriander in low fire 2 cups at a time for 5 minutes or till you get the nice flavor of the coriander seeds.
Roast the chilies in little oil.
Roast all the dhal in ½ teaspoon ghee.
Separately roast the fenugreek and mustard.
When cold grind all to a smooth powder and store in an air tight container.
The day you are grinding this powder the entire house will be filled with the rasam powder flavour.

Aachi,

This podi sounds wonderful. I have been looking for a good recipe for rasam podi for a long time now. Thanks for posting! Just one doubt, by 1 cup do you mean the standard measure of 1 cup (approx 240ml) or the rice cooker cup?

Devi,You can use a small cup if you need only a small qty of rasam powder but dont change the proportion

Hi Aunty

I like your blog very much.I try this rasam recipe with the rasam powder. It was really nice. Aunty I have one doubt. In this rasam powder recipe one cup means how much milligrams? If I prepare with small quantity I used how much fenugreek,bengal gram,cumin,pepper?

Solai Chidambaram said...

Helen one cup I refer is 200gms.You take a small cup and use the ingredients accordingly.you use the small cup and measure 2 or 1 in that
