Rasam Powder

This recipe is from my mother. She is an expert in Rasam and you can find her Rasam recipe here. So do check it out.

  • 3 cups Coriander seeds
  • 1 cup Whole Black Pepper
  • 1 cup Cumin seeds
  • 1 cup Toor Dal
  • 1 cup Dry Red chilly
  • 1 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  1. Take all the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and microwave it on high for 1 min to just warm it up.
  2. Grind it to a fine powder in a mixer.
  3. Allow it to cool completely and transfer it to an airtight container.  
Suggestions/ Notes
  1. In the olden days the ingredients are kept in the sun to warm it before grinding but since all the modern kitchens are now equipped with a microwave, we can use that instead, as given in step 1.
  2. This powder does not need refrigeration and can be kept in an airtight container for even 6 months.
