Homemade Rasam powder, how to prepare Rasam powder

Homemade rasam powder is very flavourful spicy powder which is aromatic . It is easy to prepare rasam if rasam powder is ready. Rasam powder is prepared in different ways in different areas, but coriander  seeds, cumin seeds and pepper are common in every rasam powder. Rasam is regularly prepared in south Indian Thali for lunch. This rasam powder is used for Tomato Rasam, Lemon Rasam. I prepare rasam powder twice a month. Instead of buying Rasam powder from shops, try to prepare homemade fresh rasam powder you will love the taste and aroma of rasam😍. As we use cumin seeds and pepper in rasam powder it helps in digestion.
