  1. Heat the ghee or coconut oil and lighty roast all the spices (except the turmeric) until fragrant. Make sure to roast them on medium flame for 1-2 minutes only, otherwise the spices might burn and become bitter and ruin the color of the rasam.

  2. Then, transfer to a food processor or blender and grind with the turmeric until it becomes a fine powder. Your rasam powder is ready!

  3. You can store this in an airtight container in a fridge or pantry, it’s good for 2-3 months.
