Jeeraga rasam

This is yet another simple rasam. I relish rasam. So I use as many rasam recipes to try out.

  • Marble size ball of tamarind.
  • 1 tablespoons of Thuvar dhal
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons Jeera
  • 4 medium spiced dry red chillies
  • Salt to taste
  • Ghee for tempering
  • Mustard seeds, curry leaves, coriander leaves for garnish

Soak tamarind in warm water and extract pulp. Add some more water to the pulp, add required salt and boil in microwave medium high for 7 minutes.

Add little water to the dhal, jeera and red chillies. Let them soak for few minutes. Blend them in a mixer to a paste. Wash mixer jar and add the water extract to the above.

Mix the boiled tamarind and the ground spice. Microwave on high for three minutes.

Garnish with tempered mustard seeds in ghee and the fresh curry and coriander leaves.

Serve with rice. It tastes good even if you want to drink as a soup.
