Rasam is derived from a Tamil word ‘irasam’ and the Sanskrit word ‘rasa’, both words meaning essence or extract. It is believed to have originated in the 16th century in Madurai by Sourashtras, an immigrant community. They prefer calling it ‘Pulichaar’ which means tart or tamarind.

Over the decades, the beloved Rasam came to be known by many names in South India. The dish is called Rasam in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, saaru in Karnataka, chaaru in Andhra Pradesh and saar in Maharashtra. Along with giving it a local name, every region also gave it its own twist to the flavour.

With 200 known varieties of Rasam, there are but minor differences in texture and flavour. Unlike, Rasam, saaru and chaaru have a thicker consistency with a touch of Saarina Pudi (a dry powder).

  • Retains heat for a longer period. Thus keeping your food warm for a longer duration avoiding repetitive re-heating.

How to Clean:

For general and deep cleaning, allow the earthen pot to soak overnight in the sink in water mixed with baking soda. Add 3 tablespoons of baking soda per liter of hot water. Wash the pot with a soft bristle brush or nonmetallic scrubbing pad. Do not use abrasive scouring powders because they will clog the pores and make the pot useless. Salt or ash can be used as a non-toxic alternative to chemical cleaners. Sprinkle salt/ash into the pot and scour it using a scouring pad. Rinse the pot with warm water and allow it to dry.

If any mold forms during storage periods sprinkle baking soda inside the pot, then rinse with warm water using a brush to remove the mold. If clay pores become clogged, the pot should be cooked in boiling water for about 30 minutes.

Never use soap or detergent because the porous nature of clay will absorb the soap. The detergent may leave an unpleasant soapy taste and this flavor will leach back into your next clay pot meal.

Storage:

After washing, make sure to store your earthenware in dry and well-ventilated areas. This will eliminate the risk of mold growth inside the pot.

If bacterial growth is of concern, dry the pots in a 200°F oven for 30 minutes before storing in a cool, dry place.
