Rasam Powder

Ingredients to make Rasam Powder

  • 2 tsp Tur dal (Arhar dal)
  • 1 tsp chana dal
  • 1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds (methi)
  • 2 tsp coriander seeds (dhania)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cumin seeds (Jeera)
  • 1 tbsp peppercorns or freshly ground pepper powder
  • 3 tbsp red chilli Powder or 12 Dried red chillies
  • 1 tbsp asafoetida (Heeng)
  • 7 – 8 curry leaves

How to make Rasam Powder

  1. Roast the two dals first,then the seeds one by one – coriander,fenugreek and cumin.If you have whole peppercorns then roast them on the lowest heat and put them last as the pan would be hot.
  2. Do not roast them on high heat as it causes smoke,suffocation and coughing.Else use the powder.If using dried red chillies roast them now on low heat till you hear a crisp crackling sound indicating that they are roasted!
  3. Roast the curry leaves till they turn dry and crackle under the spoon.
  4. Leave everything to come to room temperature and powder finely.Store this in an airtight container and use as required.

My Tip:

The two things to remember : 1.We need to dry roast everything. 2.This has to be done separately as each ingredient has its own time of coming to the right colour which is golden brown.
