Rasam Powder

Rasam Powder is famous in Thanjavur style of cooking. They make separate powder for Rasam. I use this rasam powder as a masala powder for most of my side dishes, variety rice like Tomato rice. Can be grinded and stored for 15 days or one month. Rasam will taste really good if the powder is fresh and grinded every 15 days. The ingredients are as follow:

Ingredients : -

  1. Red chillies - 1 small cup
  2. Coriander Seeds - 1/4 cup
  3. Pepper - 2 Tbsp
  4. Fenugreek seeds- 3/4 tbsp
  5. Cumin Seeds - 2 tbsp
  6. Mustard seeds - 1 tbsp
  7. Toor dal - 1 tbsp
  8. Asafoetida - 3 or 4 pinches
  9. Turmeric - 2 tsp or small piece of turmeric (viralli manjal)
In a wide pan, fry these ingredients one by one to golden brown and let it cool. Now grind these ingredients and store it.
