Rasam is a South Indian Soup flavoured with spices, garlic and tamarind (Imli). This is one thing that we always look forward to whenever we visit South Indian Restaurant. Its one of my husband’s favourite. Specially with rice its simply awesome. I have been thinking of making it from a long time and finally today I decided that my kitchen would be aromatic with the amazing flavours of Indian spices blended with tamarind in a thin soup. This South Indian Delicious soup has medicinal properties to ward off cold and cough. Tamarind helps lose weight, reduce cholesterol and its healthy for liver too. The recipe is quick and simple and I googled up for the basic steps and found decent post by Dassana of vegrecipesofindia.com and came up with my own version of it. I have used Methre (Fenugreek Seeds), Jeera(Cumin Seeds), Ajwain(Carom Seeds), Laung(Clove), Black Pepper Sabut, Sabut Red Chilli, Garlic Cloves and dry roasted all these. Then coarse ground them (dardara masala). In desi ghee, I roasted chopped tomatoes and added the above masala along with tamarind paste and added salt and water. I also added little jaggery to add flavour. This is the simplest and tastiest recipe of Rasam. No extra grocery shopping. Everything is available in our Kitchen as ingredients are so basic. This was planned for dinner and I had made rice along with it. It was a nice surprise as everybody liked it.
Hope you enjoy it too..Do share your experience with me.
