It was the time when I was at Patna (Bihar) it’s my In-laws place. One day I just decided to treat them with the most preferred dish of south India Rasam. Everyone agreed to taste this speciality. Now the challenge for me was to get the Rasam powder from market. Since it’s not a very well known dish there we could not get ready made Rasam powder anywhere. So I prepared it at home with the following ingredients and “WOW” was the Rasam prepared from this powder. So friends go ahead and try this simple and tasty Rasam powder.
Dhaniya (Coriander Seeds) – 1 Cup
Kashmiri Mirch (Red Chilly )-3 Cup
Tur Dal (Piegon Pea) -2 tablespoon
Methi (Fenugreek seeds) - 4 Teaspoon
Jeera (Cumin Seeds)- 6 Teaspoon
Sarson (Mustard seeds)- 1 Teaspoon
Kali Mirch (Black Pepper)-1 teaspoon
Dal Chini- 2 Small Pieces
Curry Leaves- 4 sticks
Method of preparation
Roast Red Chiilies with 1 teaspoon oil in a frying pan.
Then dry roast other ingredients (Dhaniya,Tur Dal,Methi, jeera,sarson,black pepper, dalchini, curryleaves ) in a frying pan till you get a fragrance.
Put everything in a mixer jar and grind to a fine powder. Your Rasam Powder is ready to use. You can store this in a jar and keep it for future use.
