BM #97 Week 4 Day 1 -

Horse Gram or Uluvalu is one of the very few legumes with medicinal properties. Rasam prepared using this Rasam powder is supposed to be helpful for people with kidney stones. 

The rasam made using this rasam powder is the first in the bookmarked recipes series this week. 

A few days ago, we had been to a friend's place for dinner where they served this Uluvala Charu. I had earlier made Uluvala Charu at home but that was a different version. We loved the rasam very much and upon getting the recipe from my friend's mom, I was planning to make this at home. But my friend's mom affectionately packed a box full of this rasam powder. Such return gifts are very precious, right?

  3. I have packed my mother in laws rasam powder for my friends and have received podis in return too. So I know how good it feels to give and receive such homemade treats. Now that you have the recipe, you can make it anytime too

  4. This is a very unique podi ! Sounds great , I am sure trying new podia must be interesting as well .

  6. Would try this sometime. BTW did you find the quantity of coriander seeds enough in this rasam powder? Just asking because we use lentils and coriander seeds in the same ratio.
