    Default Rasam Without Tamarind & Dhal !

    Poricha Rasam



    This rasam is prepared without tamarind & dhal.

    Hence it can be prepared in 15 mts with a freshly ground powder & has an excellent flavour.



    Ingredients:

    Tomatoes 2-3 (chopped )

    Salt, haldi, curry leaves, coriander leaves

    Water 2 cups



    Fry in tsp ghee & powder

    Tur dhal tsp

    Udad dhal tsp

    Dhania 1 tsp

    Red chilli 1-2

    Pepper tsp

    Jeera sp

    Copra powder 1 tsp

    Hing powder tsp.



    Method;

    Mix all ingredients in a small pressure pan & cook for one whistle.

    If you do not have copra powder, just keep 1 tsp fresh coconut in a small plate in

    the microwave & micro medium for 3-4 mts till it is crisp. This has a fresh taste as well.

    Tomatoes & red chillies can be adjusted to suit individual preferences.
    Temper in 1/2 tsp ghee with mustard seeds , jeera & 1/2 tsp 3 in 1 powder.
    Garnish with coriander leaves.

    Default pineapple rasam was tooooooooooooooo goood..

    Dear Chitra,

    How do I thank u Chitra???

    The Pineapple rasam was fantastic.. - I had garnished the rasam with pineapple pieces and every time u bite on them, it gives such a beautiful taste - little sweet, little sour, little spicy (with addition of rasam powder), its a beautiful blend of diff tastes and thank u so much for sharing this recipe.

    I used the readymade rasam powder - would like to try with fresh, home-made powder the next time....

    My next preparation would be - PROJECT " VATHA KUZHAMBU & SAMBAR SERVED WITH IDLIS....."
