Rasam is one of our must have dish in our morning meals in almost all south Indian esp Tamil households. The variety of rasam made is mind boggling , while the traditional Rasam calls for a specially mixed blend of ingredients, dry roasted or sun dried and commercially milled , there are also several quick fix rasam types that come so handy when you have run out of the stock of Rasam powder or simply because you crave a different taste in rasam . one such handy recipe is the arachavitta rasam , which simply means ground spices for rasam . The best part of making this yummy rasam , it doesnt need any dal , though it can be added if you have some cooked dal and water to add .
As the ingredients used are fresh, roasted and blended to a powder or paste , the aroma of such arachavitta rasam is very heady and inviting and i usually have bigger helping of rasam rice with hot ghee and any poriyal as side dish .
