Lime-Ginger Rasam

Got this delicious and healty rasam from Akshayapaatram


for rasam:
2 nos – Ripe Tomatoes, halved
4 nos – Green Chillies
2 nos – 1 inch piece of crushed Ginger
1 no – Lime or 2 Tbsp lime juice
1 sprig – Curry Leaves
1/2 cup – Coriander leaves

1 cup – Toor dal, boiled and mashed
Salt to taste

for seasoning:

1 tsp – ghee
1 tsp – Mustard seeds
1 tsp – Jeera/Cumin seeds

Boil one cup of toor dal and mash it well once cooked.
In a vessel, add 3 cups of water and toss all the rasam ingredients except the dal and lime juice and curry leaves( i.e tomatoes, crushed ginger,coriander, chillies and salt)
Bring the rasam to a boil, the tomatoes would have lost shape by this time

Add in the cooked dal now and mix well to get rid of lumps and bring the rasam to a boil again. You could add a little rasam powder now if you want

In a separate pan, heat the ghee and add in the mustard seeds and jeera and a few curry leaves. Once the seeds start popping add it to the rasam.Also add in the juice of one lime or its equivalent.

Serve hot with rice or enjoy it as a soup 🙂
