Easy Rasam powder recipe -how to make rasam powder easily at home
Here comes one more "at home" recipes.I can say,It is very easy recipe if you have all the ingredients handy.
I have told you in previous post that i am currently trying some south indian recipes.When i visited another fabulous Fellow blogger's space,I always found atleast one south indian Kitchen recipe from their blog.
Rasam is one of the recipe i wanted to try for so long.Before i jumped to any rasam,My duty is to learn about the ingredients used in rasam.Rasam Powder is the heart of any rasam recipe however there is one rasam variety on blog which is prepared without rasam powder.

There are very basic ingredients used for making classic rasam powder.When you dry roast this ingredients,It leaves its unique aroma which is good enough to make you crazy ;) :P
I have seen many version of rasam powder recipe which also includes Curry leaves.I am not using Curry leaves in this recipe because i just wanted to observe the flavor of south indian masala without curry leaves.You are free to add curry leaves in this recipe.

Some other south indian recipe Toor Dal Rasam , TOmato Rice ,Curd Rice , Maysore Masala Roll
