Name: anitha City: dubai Comments: hii i have taken your recipe , will try it out , thank uName: geethkar City: hyderabad Comments: recipe is ok.but u didn't suggest which branded rasam powder one should use and kindly give me recipe on how to prepare spicy rasam powder
Name: Shubha City: USA Comments: I am sorry to say that isn't anywhere close to the authentic south Indian Rasam. Rasam needs black pepper , not green chillies.
And Hing 1 table spoon or even a tea spoon, will taste bad. I suggest for a pinch or two.
Name: Hilda City: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Comments: will try your recipe which us similar to how we do it in malaysia. would like to ask what sort of dal do you use.Name: akshata City: bangalore Comments: are you CRAZY??? ONE teaspoon of hing (asafoetida)??? i repeat...are u CRAZY??Name: poorani City: bangalore Comments: in south indian rasam we must use green chilly SUBHA. i am typical south indian girl and also i taught by my granny. pepper should grinded in the raasam powder.Name: chitra City: Dubai Comments: You have not mentioned which dal to be used. is it toor or moong... Name: rajni City: ameroon Comments: I am not southindian but this rasam w`ont be taste like rasam.Toomuch of hing will spoil of tasteName: sandhya City: delhi Comments: hello,
ur receipe is ok but you have not mentioned dal name.Name: Nisha City: Bangalore Comments: Excuse me, who thought you to prepare rasam? Definitely, if we follow your way of preparation, rasam will taste horrible. Rasam is a typical south Indian dish, so you better learn from any south Indian girl to prepare rasam.
Hope you don't mind.Name: Sunitha City: Bangalore Comments: The dal that we usually use in prepraring RASAM "TOOR DAL"Name: Sharmila City: Thane Comments: As per my experience Rasam tastes best when you follow the recipe given on the branded rasam powder packets!! Name: seema City: usa Comments: which dal we should use in rasam. Name: Malti Pillay City: Pune Comments: I would appreciate if you can also tell me the brand for rasam powder or how to make it at homeName: Sowmya Shankar City: Muscat Comments: Hi, the article is good. As it says there is no clear recipe mentioned for rasam powder. Below is the one, u can try for a spicy rasam.
Toor dal 2 spns
Pepper - 2 spns
Red chilly - 2-3 nos
Jeera - 2 spns
Put little oil in a small kadai and add toor dal, pepper,red chilly and asafoetida powder to it. Fry till toor dal becomes little red. Then add jeera to the mixture and powder it. U can keep this powder for 4-5 days. If u require more spicy, u can add more jeera and red chilly.
ThanksName: Pooja City: Bangalore Comments: Just to add my two bits to the ongoing debate on the 'authenticity' of the recipe..different communities in south india prepare rasam in slightly different ways.
even within a karnataka the recipe varies within communities- so ladies, take it easy and enjoy the rasam!Name: Sam City: Chennai Comments: To add some more to the debate. Ask any southerner about rasam and s/he would come out with varieties.
As for me, a late entrant to the culinary side of life, the first step would be to follow Sharmila's starting point about going along with what is on the recipe of branded rasam powder packets.
From there it is just a matter of innovations. To get to one of the controversial points - perhaps Smita meant one pinch. These mistakes happen so chill out please. Smita - appreciations for the effort and keep them going.
Check out the lemon rasam mode, I am sure it will be liked by all. Goes best with Appalam. One final word on Rasam, however, is that more than any dish this varies according along with the manner in which the recipes are handled.
I just cooked a pure tomato rasam, which does not require any rasam powder. Its good and matches the ones in which the powder is used. In its own way it different.
Name: nam City: chennai Comments: This Rasam recipe is good. There r so many varities and this is one of them. Name: Divya City: VA Comments: Thanks for the Iyangari recipe Smita! Im a south Indian tamil Iyangar and we DO use thoor dhal in one particular type of rasm we make. A pinch of hing is FINE!

thank uName: prasanna City: USA Comments: I must say this recipe is bizzare. Here is a recipe for tasty rasam.
23 tomatoes (chopped small)
34 garlic cloves (grated or finely chopped)
Lemon sized ball of tamarind
One handful Toor dal
1 tsp Rasam powder
1 tsp Jeera black pepper powder(Dry roast 1:1 black pepper and jeera, grind coarsely. Even this powder alone is enough. No need to add rasam powder.)
1.Boil the toor dal in a pressure cooker.
2. Soak tamarind in water for 20 min. Extract pulp.
3.Add chopped tomatoes, tamarind pulp, garlic(optional) and salt in water. Boil.
4.Once tomatoes are cooked add rasam powder and jeerblack pepper powder. Do not boil too long after adding the powders otherwise the flavor will be lost. 23 min is sufficent. (Instead of rasam powder even sambar pdr along with jeerapepper pdr tastes good.)
5. Add the cooked and mashed dal.
6.Break the green chillies roughly into 2 pieces with hand and add it to the rasam when it is almost done.
7.Add curry leaves and coriander broken into pieces with fingers. Turn off the heat.
8. Heat ghee in a small kadai. Add a pinch of hing, mustard seeds, jeera seeds. When they splutter add them to the rasam.
9.Enjoy as a soup or with rice.Name: Prasanna City: USA Comments: I am sorry the fonts got messed up. I meant 2 to 3 tomatoes. 3 to 4 garlic cloves. 2 to 3 min is sufficient after adding spice powders.
