Ingredients (240 ml cup used)
- 1 cup Coriander seeds or Daniya or Daniyalu
- ¼ cup Toor dal or split pigeon peas or kandhi pappu
- ¼ cup Channa dal or Bengal gram or senaga pappu (optional)
- 2 tbsp Cumin or Jeera
- 1 to 2 tsp Pepper corn (adjust to suit your spice levels)
- 4 to 6 broken red chilies (adjust to suit your spice levels)
- ¼ to ½ tbsp. Fenugreek seeds or Methi or menthulu
- ½ tsp. hing
- Handful fresh curry leaves
How to make the recipe
Wash curry leaves and spread them on a cloth for the water to dry off completely. Otherwise the water splutters while frying them.
Clean all the ingredients, one after the other.
Heat a pan, add channa dal and toor dal. Fry till a nice aroma comes. They will also turn golden in color. Transfer this to a plate.
Lower the flame. To the same pan add coriander seeds and red chilies. Fry till they turn crunchy. Switch off the stove. Transfer them to the plate.
To the pan add pepper, cumin and methi. Stir for 2 minutes till the cumin and methi smell good. Move this to the plate as well.
Add the curry leaves to the pan and fry till crisp. Using few drops of oil to fry them, helps to bring out the aroma of the curry leaves. Do not use more.
Cool the fried ingredients completely. Powder them in a blender jar. If you do not have a powerful blender, sieve the rasam powder. Powder the coarse grains again.
Store the rasam powder in a clean and dry jar.
