Rasam Without Tamarind & Dhal !
This rasam is prepared without tamarind & dhal.
Hence it can be prepared in 15 mts with a freshly ground powder & has an excellent flavour.
Tomatoes 2-3 (chopped )
Salt, haldi, curry leaves, coriander leaves
Water 2 cups
Fry in ¼ tsp ghee & powder
Tur dhal ½ tsp
Udad dhal ½ tsp
Dhania 1 tsp
Red chilli 1-2
Pepper ¼ tsp
Jeera ½ sp
Copra powder 1 tsp
Hing powder ½ tsp.
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.

pineapple rasam was tooooooooooooooo goood..
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....."
