Rasam (South Indian Soup) podi

Rasam can be called as South indian soup. There are different kinds of rasam slightly varying in the ingredients used. The recipe i am going to give can be used to make traditional home-made rasam. I learnt this from my grany and finding it very useful. Hope you guys will enjoy it.


Coriander seeds- 1 cup

Toor dhal – 1/2 cup

Bengal gram-  1/2 cup

Pepper – 2tbsp

Cumin seeds – 2Tbsp

Turmeric- A small piece

Red chilly – 4 cups


  • Measure all the ingredients and keep separately.
  • Keep the red chillies in the hot sun for few minutes. So that it can be fried easily without taking much time.
  • Fry all the ingredients to golden brown one by one.
  • While frying the red chillies add one drop of oil so that you wont start sneezing while doing that.
  • Allow the ingredients to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Later grind the ingredients one by one in the mixie.
  • Finally mix everything to get your rasam podi.
