This powder can be added to a number of dishes. But the most important item that is made with this powder is 'Seeragam Rasam'.
Seeragam Rasam is similar to soup.
1. You can prepare this Rasam with or without dal. To prepare this with dal water, cook about 50 gm of split gram (pigeon pea) with a pinch of turmeric powder and take its diluted water. To prepare this without dal just take a cup of water in a pan.
Usually this item is eaten with rice in South India. But it is also drunk as soup. It is very useful to aid digestion and hence can be served as an appetizer.
In South India this Rasam is served as a very effective soup to people suffering from fever or cold. It is the chicken soup for the vegetarians.
