INGREDIENTS FOR THE RASAM POWDER:  Urad Dal - 2 cups Whole Peppercorns - 1/4 cup Dessicated coconut/Dry coconut - 1/2 cup HOW TO MAKE: Take a frying pan .Add urad dal and peppercorns and dry roast it until you start smelling a nice aroma.(Make sure  you do not burn the mixture). Turn off the stove. Add the dessicated coconut to the above mixture and mix well. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Once it is cooled.Take a mixer grinder and grind the mixture to a smooth powder.(NOTE: SO NOT ADD ANY WATER..It should be a dry smooth powder) Now the Pepper rasam powder is ready . Store the powder in an air tight container.
