LG said... mom prepares rasam pudi just like the above procedure, however my motherinlaw takes 1:1 of chillies and coriander seeds. Thanks for sharing

Awesome recipe. I used to prepare similar rasam powder. I grind them coarsely as this helps the liquid in rasam seperates well.

Hi Veda,

Puliyogare is my all time fav! I really wanna try out your authentic puliyogare recipe that you have described so beautifully. Hence I want to try this Rasam powder too for the puliyogare. It would be of much help if you can give the measurements in cups/tsp/tbsp as I don't have a kitchen weighing machine. Hope I'm not asking much from you.. :)
