  • 20 Red chilli long variety
  • ¼ cup Toor dal
  • ¼ cup Chana dal
  • 3 tablespoon Black pepper
  • 3 tablespoon Cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon Hing


  • Dry roast red chilli,hing (if solid. Refer notes), channa dal and toor dal first until dals are golden in colour. Roast in medium flame with constant frying. Transfer to a plate for cooling and then roast coriander seeds and pepper until fragrant.
  • Once the coriander seeds is roasted well, it lends a great flavour. Now add jeera lastly. Fry until it starts popping. Cool everything completely.
  • Powder it to a fine powder in a mixer and store in an airtight container.


  • I used solid hing so roasted along the ingredients together. If powder, you can add it towards end while roasting to prevent burning.
  • Can be stored for a month if handled properly in an airtight container.
  • If you want you can add turmeric in this powder. I add turmeric to rasam only if needed.
