Chaaru/Rasam

>> Saturday, August 2, 2008

Rasam is a simple preparation that I love to make anytime. Easy, quick, tasty and light to the stomach. Almost every household's meal is incomplete without Rasam in southern part of India.

Ingredients:
Dal Water or cooked dal - 1 cup
Tamarind Pulp - 1/2 cup
Tomatoes - 2
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Black Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - pinch
Rasam Powder - 2 tsp
Water - 1 cup

Seasoning:
Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Hing - pinch
Dry Red Chillies - 2
Curry Leaves
Methi Seeds-4

Method:
1. In a deep cooking bowl, add water and chopped tomatoes and cook in medium heat.
2. Once the water starts boiling and tomatoes start oozing out the juice, add the Dal water/cooked Dal, tamarind juice and add salt.
3. Once the mixture comes to a boil, add Turmeric and Rasam powder and boil for few mins.
4. Add chopped coriander leaves and turn off the stove.
5. Finally do the seasoning and add to Rasam.


Seasoning:
In a Tadka pan, add oil, jeera and mustard seeds. Once they start to crackle, add the hing, red chillies and curry leaves and turn off the stove. Add the above Tadka to Rasam.
