Rasam sadham recipe, Rasam rice

Rasam sadham recipe | Rasam recipe a simple and easy one pot meal, recipe with video and step by step pictures. Recently i attended my cousin's wedding in Chennai and the food served on all the 3 days was so awesome and a wide spread too. They served Rasam sadham in one of the dinner menu and it was totally yum. I was so attracted by the simplicity and taste of the dish. The next day i asked the caterer the method of how to make Rasam sadham. He was sweet enough to tell as how it was made. The caterers generally make in big open pot but i chose the pressure cooker method. It turned out so well and my son who never eats rasam, loved this rasam rice. The hot rasam rice and the Arbi fry| seppankizhangu fry on the side made a yummy lunch today. Do try this recipe at home and let me know how it turned out.

Notes:

  1. You can puree the tomatoes and add too but i want to recreate the one i had in the wedding so added chopped tomatoes only. 
  2. Adding little generous ghee and oil to the rasam sadam brings out a nice aroma to it. 
  3. You can add few cloves of crushed garlic while adding the pepper jeera powder.
  4. Instead of rasam powder you can use sambar powder too.
