Homemade rasam powder recipeI have never seen my mother or even my paati making a special kind of rasam powder and storing it!my Amma used to grind some coriander seeds,cumin,red-chillies and some peppers with motor and pestle(not the small one that we are using nowadays it is larger in size and called as ammi kal in Tamil)make a paste at that juncture when she is about to make rasam.Homemade rasam powder recipeThen after marriage my mil too used to do the same!but the taste was always perfect and flavorsome.They used motor and pestle,the taste you get from it is totally matchless.I have tried all brands of rasam powders and stopped buying ready-made rasam powder when I made a rewarding rasam powder of my own.Another great ingredient that I love adding is horsegram/kollu apart from its health benefits it adds a ruling taste to rasam you make…

Notes

Keep the rasam powder container closed nicely so that the flavors are intact and transfer a little from it to a small airtight container and use from it!fill it up then and there. Can change the amount of chillies added according to your taste. As we add kollu to it the taste is so nice and aromatic. I have used garlic powder you can add garlic cloves instead after roasting it.
