Hotel Rasam :- I learnt this recipe from my friend Anu.This rasam is made without Garlic.It tastes similar to the rasam we get from hotel.So i named it Hotel Rasam.

Ingrediants(measures for 4)

Rasam Powder
  • Chana Dhal(kadalai parupu) - 1 tb spoon
  • Kothamali seeds/Corriander seeds - 1/2 tb spoon
  • Black pepper corns - 1 t spoon
  • Cumin Seeds/Jeera Seeds - 1 1/2 t spoon
  • Dry Red Chilli - 2 big
  • Methi/Vendhayam - 1 pinch
Ingrediants to make rasam powder.Only for display,not exact measures

Heat a kadai and dry roast(until channa dhal,corr.seeds turn into brown color) all the above ingrediants.

Dry roasted ingrediants ready to be powdered

Cool it for a while.Grind to a fine powder in a blender or coffee grinder.
  • Tamarind- lemon size,soak in 4 cups of water
  • Tomato- 1/2 medium chopped
  • Corriander/kothamali leaves - chopped ,as required
  • Powders- turmeric 1/4 t spoon,hing/Kayam 4 shakes
  • Salt-as required
  • Seasoning-mustard,curry leaves

Heat oil in a kadai,add the seasonings,when it splutters,add tomatoes fry until they are mushy.Add the rasam powder and fry for 3 mins.Nice aroma arises at this stage.Now add the tamarind water.Add the powders,salt.Allow to boil for 6 to 7 mins.Add corriander leaves.When you see bubbles starting to arise.Switch off the stove.Rasam is ready.Serve with rice or as a soup particulary when it is raining outside.

  • You can make the rasam powder in a bluk,store it in a air tight container or in freezer as use it as needed.
  • It goes well with veggie side dishes.

Nice recipe, looks good, but try presenting it better by adding some garnishing!! Seriously it doesn't look very advertising when looked upon.
