Rasam powder is one of the most requested recipe in yummy tummy. I dont usually make rasam powder, i use a combination of spices and make rasam at home. So i kind of postponed the recipe. Amma also dont use rasam powder much, but she makes them every now and then.
Bachelor Rasam Recipe
Bachelor Rasam Recipe
Let me introduce my perimma(aunt) to you..She is a great cook and she has given me lots of her recipe. They all are a great success. You can check all of her recipes right here..
Now coming back to this recipe, it is one of her secret recipe. Her rasam always tasted unique and different. When she told me the recipe, i was quite surprised hearing the addition of jaggery. But i know it is not weird because even i add little sugar or jaggery when i make rasam, it balances the taste.
She told this is a bachelor rasam powder, because she used to make this for my brothers when they go abroad. And it is a no fail recipe too. So couple days back she came home and we decided to try this powder. I took pictures as she made this and the next day i made rasam out of it and it was truly delicious. the rasam was very clear and totally yummy. Will share that rasam recipe soon as well.
There is one more thing, we also made her bachelor friendly sambar powder. I know you will be truly amazed with that recipe, because it is a keeper. Let me tease you a little, can you imagine making the best tasting hotel style sambar without dal and also the sambar can be done in less than 15 mins. Will be sharing that soon as well..So Keep checking..
