Rasam Powder Podi Recipe

Rasam is something that I make very rare as I have to make only for myself but since I like rasam a lot I do try to make it once in a while to satisfy my craving.  Like I mentioned in my sambar powder post, rasam powder too is not something that is used my parents place.  I started using rasam powder couple of years back only after a friend passed me some rasam powder to try and from that time I never miss rasam powder any more.

Rasam Powder Podi Recipe

I got recipe from my friend and started making my own powder which runs for me a long time since I use less.  I do use this rasam powder in some of the curry too as it's pleases me.  This rasam powder is very aromatic and flavorful which adds a wonderful zing to rasam.  If you haven't tried rasam  powder then try this one and you will love this too.
