Yesterday we were talking about “Sambar Powder” which is one of the most important spice mix of South India and today we will discuss one more spice mix from South India called… “Rasam Powder”. Sometimes people got confused between sambar powder and rasam powder because of similarity of ingredients but taste and aroma is totally different. Come have a look on…
SSJ's EASIEST HOMEMADE RASAM POWDER
Coriander seeds (Dhania) – ½ cup
Dried Red Chilies- 12-13
Toor Daal (Arhar Daal) – 4tbsp.
Chana Daal (Gram Lentil) – 4tbsp.
Whole Peppercorns – 2tbsp.
Cumin seeds (Jeera) – 2tbsp.
Asafetida (Hing) – ¼ tbsp.
If you want to store this powder for a long time then put all these spices in sunlight for minimum 2 hours also same as sambar powder.
Now put a dried pan on gas stove. First dry roast coriander seeds with hing till fragrance comes out. Now take out it in a plate.
Now put red chilies, cumin seeds and peppercorns and dry roast them also. Take out in same plate.
Now put both daals and dry roast till daal become golden. Take out in same plate.
Now let it all completely cool.
When it cools , add to your mixer jar.
Finally Rasam Powder is ready to use.
Rasam is actually a South Indian soup which normally enjoyed with steamed rice.
