udupi saaru pudirasam powder recipe | udupi saaru pudi | rasam podi with step by step photo and video recipe. rasam or saaru recipes are one of the south indian staple dishes and are made on a daily basis. it could be a simple lunch or dinner, or it could be a celebration feast, rasam plays an important role in every meal. particularly in karnataka, the udupi saaru is known for its flavour and taste, and the main contribution comes from the rasam powder.

i am a huge fan of rasam recipes, particularly the udupi saaru recipe is my personal favourite. back in my hometown (udupi), we make rasam with just tamarind juice, jaggery, toor dal and most important one udupi saaru pudi spice mix. unlike in other rasam variants, where tomatoes take a significant role to derive the taste and flavour. the spice mix and tamarind juice take precedence in this recipe. as a matter of fact, to make this rasam, the tamarind juice is boiled thoroughly with jaggery chilli and salt. during this process, it discharges all its raw flavour and when mixed with rasam spice mix, it yields one of the best rasam recipes.
