Rasam with fresh ground rasam powder, flavour from the ingredients we grind for the rasam makes it unique, special and spicy. Full video post.

Got this recipe from a reader friend Pavithra Vijayaraghavan. She sent me the picture of her mom’s handwritten note which has been noted down as ‘Cook Veeraraghavan’s Rasam‘. She told the rasam powder is the key. It’s true, it was very unique flavor from the regular rasam I make. Super spicy and flavourful too. Simple ingredients. Thanks a lot for sharing the recipe 🙂

Do try it out, even a small change in ingredient or procedure gives a whole different flavour from our regular rasams and good for a change too. Check out other rasam recipes.
