Ajwain /Omam Rasam

My all time favourite comforting food is definitely rasam with anything, a prefect dish to enjoy with fried papads while its cold and snowy outside, this time i prepared my rasam with ajwain seeds, i havent had them since a long ..As i was quite lazy to cook, i went immediately for making this easy breezy,comforting at the same time a delicious rasam..As usual this rasam goes for simple ingredients but i prepared a rasam powder with ajwain seeds along with coriander seeds,cumin seeds, peppercorns, dry red chillies and toor dal..This rasam tastes truy fabulous and divine when served along with some spicy side dish and hot steaming rice..Sending this rasam to CWS-Ajwain Seeds guest hosted by Kavita, event by me..

    This sambar sounds perfect for the cold weather we are facing! I really like your combination of spices for the sambar powder. Do you think the powder could be used for other dishes, too?
