Ingredients

  • 1 Tomato
  • Tamarind a goose berry sized
  • ½ tsp Turmeric powder
  • Salt as needed
  • Asafoetida a pinch
  • Coriander leaves few
  • 1 tsp Ghee
  • 1/4 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 Red chili

Instructions

  • In a pan add 2 tblsp kollu | horse gram, 1 tblsp coriander seeds(dhaniya), 2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp cumin seeds and 4-5 red chilli.
  • Dry roast in medium flame.
  • I missed to add coriander seeds but this is a must in this recipe.
  • Add curry leaves
  • Switch off the flame.
  • Let this sit in the pan. The curry leaves will get roasted in the pan heat.
  • Cool this completely and grind into a Fine powder. This is Kollu rasam powder.
  • We can make this in little more quantity and store for 2 weeks. But I always like it fresh.
  • If making for a single use, roast the spices with 1 tsp of ghee.
  • Soak tamarind in hot water.
  • Extract 3 cups of tamarind water. Add this to a pan.
  • Add ½ tsp turmeric powder and pinch of asafoetida

  • You can add in finely chopped coriander leaves
  • Mix everything well.
  • As adding kollu rasam podi directly to the pan sometimes may end up in forming lumps, so it’s better to mix with plain water separately.
  • Add to the pan.
  • Let this froth up.
  • Switch it off.
  • Temper mustard seeds in ghee.
  • Add to rasam.
  • Hot kollu rasam ready.
