Rasam means comfort according to me. No matter how rough the day is a bowl of hot Rasam Rice and potato fry (for lunch or even dinner) brings a smile on my face. There are so many ways in which one could prepare Rasam. I follow a basic recipe using my homemade Rasam Powder. You can check the steps for preparing powder here. In case if you don’t have time to prepare Rasam Powder at home then try Shakti or Aachi brand’s Rasam Powder.
I use 1tablespoon of this rasam powder. The spiciness of the powder depends on the variety of Dried Red chillies you have used. Add 1/2 tbsp of Rasam Powder for the first time you prepare Rasam and slowly adjust quantity based on your taste buds.
