Charu Podi / Rasam Powder

Charu Podi / Rasam Powder

Passing a very dull week here with dull health.. so could not bring out any exciting recipe. Yet, came with one secret spice powder recipe. Mom’s special recipe. Rasam Powder is altered according to the taste in every kitchen. Here comes my version and you can always adjust the spices as per your taste. ย This spice powder called Rasam Powder is specifically made for making ‘Rasam’. South India’s popular thin soup/liquid dish. Will soon bring you here tomato rasam recipe.. meanwhile do have this ready in your kitchen.. Happy Cooking!!


3/4 cup pigeon peas/kandi pappu/toor dal
1 1/2 cup dhaniyalu / coriander seeds
1/2 cup Jeera/Cumin seeds
1/2 cup black peppercorns
1/2 tsp Fenugreek seeds
10 Red chillies

My Recipe:

1. Usually, the kandi pappu and coriander seeds are spread under sun and then taken to grind. If not possible, we can just microwave them for 30 sec and keep aside.

2. Bring the microwaved kandi pappu, dhaniya and all other ingredients into a mixi and make a fine powder of it. Rasam powder is ready to use.
