Make rasam powder at home

My Notes:

  • Amma says roasting the ingredients gives a nice color and increases shelf life too.Grinding rasam powder little coarse gives a nice aroma.No oil needed whil roasting.
  • The above quantity makes around 3 cups and it lasts upto 6-7 months for us as we dont make rasam often.
  • Always use a clean dry spoon everytime.
  • You can even use this powder for making any vegetable curries if you like peper jeera flavour.
  • Make sure to cool down completely before you start grinding.
