Rasam Powder/Chaaru podi

Chaaru or rasam is a regular dish in my home. The ingredients used to make this powder are good for digestion. When we have bad taste it acts like a good appetiser. This can be given to toddlers also. Making it is very easy.

Ingredients:

Toor Dal- 1 cup
Bengal Gram- 1/2 cup
Coriander seeds-1/4 cup
Cumin Seeds-1 tbsp
Fenugreek Seeds- 1/4 tbsp
Black Pepper Seeds- 1 tbsp
Asafoetida- 1tsp
Procedure:
There are two ways to make this. I will give both ways. Of course both are simple.

1.Heat kadai and roast all the ingredients till they become warm and give a crackle sound.
Do not let the dals change the colour. Roast them in the medium or low flame. 
Allow them to cool and make a coarse powder of them. 

The second way of making rasam powder is put all the ingredients in a plate and dry them under the hot sun for 4 or 5 hours. Then make a coarse powder. This can be possible only to people reside in hot weather.

Any which way we make it, leave it for a while and transfer it into a air tight container.
