Mysore Rasam

Since I started to make rasam, love to play with different kind of it. When I made it, it was full blown summer but can not control to eat this. AC was on and We were enjoying this delicious meal. I made pesarattu with achari  masala filling, sambhar, this rasam, coconut chutney , ginger chutney. I use ready made rasam powder but if you have home made that's best. I love all Mysore delicacy you know, specially Mysore rava masala dosa is my favorite so when I saw this recipe I have to make it. I altered it from Tamarind water to tomato puree, because my mom has knee problem and that sour is not good for her. Its very common in  our parents so this is a nice variation from tamarind to tomato. But if you have no problem with tamarind use that one.

Ingredients :

1/4 cup tuvar dal (yellow pigeon peas)
1/2 cup water
2 small tomatoes chopped and make puree with 1 and 1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
few curry leaves
salt to taste
2 tbsp. Rasam powder
lots of fresh chopped coriander

For tempering :

1 tbsp. oil
1/2 tsp. cumin seeds / jeera
1/2 tsp. mustard seeds / Rai
2 red chilies dry
1/4 tsp. hind
2 finely chopped garlic


Pressure cook tuvar dal with 1/2 cup water till its nice and mushy.
Switch off the heat and allow it cool.
In a pan, add tomato puree with 1 cup of water. Here you can use tamarind with 3 cups of water.
Add curry leaves , turmeric and salt and rasam powder to water.
Bring it to boil till raw smell of tomato goes away.
Heat the small pan for tempering, add oil and add all ingredients one by one and mix it to tomato mixture.
Switch it off and add coriander leaves in it.
Serve hot with dosa, idlis, pesarattu, rice.
