rasam powder recipe

I always wanted to try Rasam powder at home. But buy either aachi rasam powder or MTR rasam powder. MIL makes rasam powder and uses for a month. Her version is a coarse powder version which has no dal in it. Mom makes rasam powder just for the day freshly. I saw this recipe in my cook book mom gave me, so wanted to give it a try. Last week I tried and it was really good. So wanted to share it here. I will sure here after make my own rasam powder at home, because homemade powder is more flavourful and so unique and smell homely!
rasam powder ingredients

Rasam powder recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian | Recipe category:  Lunch 
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Makes: 1 cup


Coriander seeds - 3/4 cup

Red chilli (long variety) - 20

Toor dal - 1/4 cup

Channa dal - 1/4 cup

Black pepper - 3 tblsp

Cummin seeds - 3 tblsp

Hing - 1/2 tsp

  2. Once the coriander seeds is roasted well, it lends a great flavour. Now add jeera lastly. Fry until it starts popping. Cool everything completely.2-rasam-powder-recipe
  3. Powder it to a fine powder in a mixer and store in an airtight container.3-homemade-rasam-powder


    • I used solid hing so roasted along the ingredients together. If powder, you can add it towards end while roasting to prevent burning.
    • Can be stored for a month if handled properly in an airtight container.
    • If you want you can add turmeric in this powder. I add turmeric to rasam only if needed.

Use this rasam powder and see the difference of the aroma it lends to rasam!

I see only 2 podi in one place and other sambar and rasam powder in one place.

    I thank you for taking your time and making this site good.
