Rasam Powder

B ringing this Podi straight from my grandma’s kitchen. This was first among the recipes I jotted before moving to London . You will find a difference in my lingo in this post… 🙂 Coz its just as my darling granny told me in her broken tanglish and I did a literal translation. Till date I have never bought any of these kitchen essential powders.. Just love the home made aroma…

Will post dosa molagapodi & other podi’s soon.. with no alterations..
For Sambar powder from my family recipe , find here.
