213. Lemon rasam

Daily if we keep tamarind rasam, it may be boring. Just for a change, we can prepare lemon rasam. The recipe is very simple.

Ingredients needed :

lemon – 1

tur dal – 2 tbs

turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

sesame oil – 1/4 tsp

channa dal – 1/2 tsp

urud dal – 1/2 tsp

kalamirch – 1/2 tsp

red chilly – 2

green chilly -2

tomato – 1

jeera – 1/2 tsp

dhania – 1/2 tsp

mustard – 1/2 tsp

fenugreek seeds – 1/2 tsp

asafoetida – 1/4 tsp

ghee – 1/2 tsp

salt – 1/2 tsp

curry & coriander leaves – one small bunch

Method of preparation :

First boil  tur daal(thuvaram paruppu), with  turmeric powder,  thil oil and one cup of water in a cooker and mash well. In a kadai, dry fry  channa dal,  urud dal,  kala mirch,  jeera, red chillies,  dhania seeds and  methi(vendhayam). When it becomes cool, dry grind it. Keep a kadai on the gas and put  ghee. Add  musturd. When it splutters, put  asafoetida, chopped tomato and green chillies. After 3 minutes, add ground  powder and cooked tur dal. Keep it in the fire for 5 minutes and switch off the gas. Put curry leaves and coriander leaves. Cut a lemon into half and squeeze it. Add the lemon juice into the rasam and stir well. We should not heat the rasam after putting lemon juice. If we use the lemon rasam after half an hour, the taste will be excellent.
