Homemade Rasam Powder/ Rasam podi

I am a huge fan of Rasams. No south Indian meal is complete without it. There are different varieties of rasams and using rasam powder they can be prepared in a jiffy.  I tried this Rasam powder recipe from Nalini's site almost a month ago but still couldn't post it. May be today is the time for it.

  2. Grind adding ingredients in the following order. First toor dhal, then coriander seeds, red chillies, curry leaves then cumin seeds and pepper. The resulting powder has to be coarse.
