Home made rasam powder

When I had posted home made sambhar powder many were keenly writing to me asking for rasam powder. As winter/rainy season is approaching and climate keeps varying very frequently including rasam in daily diet helps you improving immunity and also digestion. I have the habit of making various versions of rasam based on availability of ingredients daily.Rasam for babies can be given after 8 months. You can either provide this like a soup or mix with rice or mix with dal rice and offer your little one. Here is the quick recipe of rasam powder. I shall soon post rasam recipe with this powder. I have already posted coriander garlic rasam and pineapple rasam. Stay tuned for more varieties of rasam.

You can skip red chillies if you wish,especially when you make for babies.

This can be stored for 3 months in room temperature. However I prefer to  make it once in 15 days.

Always have a word with your doctor before introducing any new food.
