For getting the entire recipe, check out Cumin Pepper Rasam,
In a bowl, take the cooked dhal, finely chopped tomatoes, Tamarind extract.
Mash the dal, tomatoes and tamarind very nicely to get everything mixed up. ..Update..see in the hurry to get this done, I forgot to mention that you should add Salt at this stage..Thanks Anon...
For Seasoning, this is what you need. Rasam Powder, Crushed garlic. It is always said that you should crush the garlic and allow it to breathe, this way it is supposed to be very healthy.
Here's where you need the scissors. Wash and clean the coriander leaves. Chop down the coriander leaves very finely over the cooking rasam.
In a deep botton pan, heat a tsp of ghee. We normally add Ghee/ Clarified butter. Then add the ingredients kept aside for seasoning. Saute well.
Then gently pour the mixed dal and tomatoes on this. Be very careful at this stage as it might splutter.On top of the rasam, chop in fine coriander
Allow to start boiling. Rule of thumb is never to disturb the cooking process.
It is coming up...
spilled over..well I don't' normally allow it spill over, but all for a photo!
When you have all the other ingredients on hand, this hardly takes only 5 minutes. Since most of the ingredients are pre-cooked, this rasam will not taste raw or uncooked or some thing.
Do try this at home and let me know. Happy Weekend!
